Chocolate Sun Butter Protein Balls!
OK, peeps! Everyone needs to stop what you are doing and make these delicious little bites of heaven! Seriously, these are the best protein balls I have made yet and I can’t wait to share them with you. So without further ado, here you go!
1 cup dates (take the pits out!)
1/3 cup Sun Butter (I use this kind)
2/3 cup gluten free oats (Trader Joe’s!)
2 tbsp Cacao Powder (Trader Joe’s!)
1-2 tsp Unrefined coconut oil (melted and drizzled in at the end) to bind together. Add a little at a time.
Put all the ingredients except the coconut oil into a food processor. Pulse together until it starts to pull together into a ball. Drizzle in the coconut oil and pulse a few more times. Scoop out 1 tbsp amount at a time, form into balls with your hands. Put in the fridge to set up. Boom! Snack away!
These are great, nut free, treats to snack on when you need a little energy or a sweet treat that isn’t full of refined sugar. Just vegan protein, complex carbs and healthy fats to fuel your day!
