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


  1. 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.

  2. Then put the dates into the same blender and cover with 1/2 cup of hot water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.

  3. In the meantime combine the rest of your ingredients with the macadamia nuts in the mixing bowl.

  4. Once the dates have finished soaking, blend on high until the dates and water have completely combined and it has made a thick liquid.

  5. Simply add the wet dates mixture to all the dry ingredients, combine and you are ready to roll.

  6. 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
