Protein Balls

IMG_0851[1]

I have seen versions of this recipe on many paleo blogs. You can adapt this recipe and use the nuts and fruits you like. I have also made these with dark chocolate chips and rolled in unsweetened shredded coconut. Keep in mind that you need 1 cup of nuts to 1 1/2 cups of dried fruit. The protein powder makes the mixture  dry so you made need extra fruit and/or coconut oil.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c dates

1/2 c cranraisins

1 c dried apricots

1 c raw almonds

1 c raw walnuts

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

3  scoops Progenex More MUSCLE (chocolate or Mocha)

OPTIONAL

2 tbsp coconut oil melted

2 tbsp raw honey

OPTIONS

substitute almonds for pecans

substitute dried cherries for cranraisins

substitute dried apricots for dried mango

1/2 c dark chocolate chips

1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut for rolling

Place the nuts in the food processor and pulse until almost creamy.  Then add the rest of the  ingredients one at time pulsing until mixed thoroughly before adding the next item. If the mixture is not moist enough add the coconut oil. The protein powder is sweetened so I do not put any extra honey or agave in the mixture but add if you like. This is a very dense and dry mixture. You will need to take a level tablespoon of the the dough and form each ball by hand. A great post workout treat or mid-day treat to keep you going.
