This is a simple base recipe for any type of protein ball concoction. You can change the protein powder flavour, change what nuts you put in or different dried fruits.  Such a great snack for before or after training.


1 cup of Almond Meal

10 Dates Pitted and Chopped

15 Almonds Chopped

1TBL  Cocao

130g Scoop of Protein Powder (I used chocolate powder)

A Dash of Vanilla Essence

Desiccated Coconut for Rolling

Enough Water to Combine


How to

Combine all dry Ingredients in a bowl or food processor then add water slowly until it makes the right consistency to roll into balls. Then roll the balls in coconut

Makes 12-15 balls

6-8g of protein per ball

I would suggest freezing them as they are easier to transport around this way also they stay fresh and last longer.
