I'm still celebrating the return of the Apple Crumble Açai bowl which is now available in all stores for the Winter season. Last week I did a recipe for a real Apple Crumble, and then this week I spent everyday thinking of what else I could make Apple Crumble flavoured. I'm properly obsessed. Here is my recipe for super easy, delicious Apple Crumble protein balls. Enjoy!
500g Almond Meal
1 cup Cashew Nuts
2 cups Dates
1 cup Dried Apple
1/2 cup Vanilla Pea Protein
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 cup Desiccated Coconut
To start, give your cashew nuts a quick blitz in the blender so they are nicely crushed up. Pour the crushed macadamias into a large mixing bowl.
Then put the dates and dried apples into the same blender and cover with 1/2 cup of hot water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
In the meantime combine the rest of your ingredients with the macadamia nuts in the mixing bowl.
Once the dates have finished soaking, blend on high until the dates and water have completely combined and it has made a thick liquid.
Simply add the wet dates mixture to all the dry ingredients, combine and you are ready to roll.
I usually try and make my balls to be about 50g, but feel free to make them however big or small.
After you have rolled all the balls, finish off by lightly rolling them or dusting them in desiccated coconut,
These will last for a few weeks in the fridge. I have even frozen a batch which will last up to 3 months. Enjoy!
