1 cup raw almonds or raw mixed nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, cashews etc)
1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon desiccated or shredded coconut (plus extra for coating)
2 tablespoons of Pics peanut butter - crunchy is best
1-2 tablespoon of honey or brown rice malt syrup
2 scoops of Nuzest chocolate protein powder OR 2 tablespoons of raw cacao (or one of each is amazing)
1) Place dates in a bowl and cover with boiled water. Soak for 8-10mins until softened. Drain dates
2) Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until nuts are all crushed up and mixture is combined.
3) Scoop heaped teaspoon amounts into your hands and roll into balls.
4) Optional: roll half of the balls in remaining coconut for a tasty coating
Store the balls in the fridge and grab one on the go for a great little snack. The balls are also great stored in the freezer if you like an extra chewy treat!
These are great for a post workout hit to get your blood sugars pumping again.
