Sarahs Super Easy Cookie Dough Protein Balls
Makes: 25 Large Balls
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
My incredible partner Edward has taste buds of an 8 year old. So I love to set myself challenges on how I can recreate his childhood favorites into healthy, wholesome treats. Here is my recipe for the Edward approved cookie dough protein balls!
500g Almond Meal
1 cup Macadamia Nuts
2 cups Dates
1/2 cup Raw Cacao Nibs
1/2 cup Vanilla Pea Protein
Optional: 1/4 cup Goji Berries
To start, give your macadamia 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 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.
These will last for a few weeks in the fridge. I have even frozen a batch which will last up to 3 months. Enjoy!
Love Sarah x
