Nut and Protein No-bake Balls

Here are some protein-packed no-bake energy balls. Great for a snack pre or post gym.

There are a lot of healthy fats (3 kinds of nuts, coconut oil) so be careful not to eat too many of these in a day. Cause then you are just over doing it. 1 or 2 is plenty, depending on how active you are.

Ingredients:

  • 9  pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder of your choice
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 3 tsp local non-pasturized honey
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of your choice (I used peanut)

Directions

  • Blend everything in a high speed blender
  • let sit in the fridge for 20 min
  • Roll into balls and enjoy!
  • These will keep in the fridge for about a week. You can even try to coat them in a crushed nut that was used in the recipe to give some texture if you want.
