Many snack and energy ball recipes contain artificial or refined protein powder and are often high in natural sugars using dates and sweeteners. So I wanted to create ones that were high in protein naturally and sweetened naturally.
These are super tasty, quick and easy to make. I can’t be bothered with things that aren’t!
Particularly great for women’s health these can aid in pre/post partum, pre/post menstrual, and they are excellent to promote lactation for breast feeding mothers.
1.5 cups of Irish, Organic Oats
2 heaped tablespoons of chia seeds
3 heaped tablespoons of milled flax seeds
3 heaped tablespoons of local, organic honey
3 heaped tablespoons of nut butter
3 heaped tablespoons of roasted buckwheat
3 heaped tablespoons of Cacao nibs
Some oat milk/water to get consistency
Put all of the above in a bowl and mix well. If you want a finer texture you can blend these in a blender.
Roll into balls and place in the fridge. I’ve found it helpful to wet the hands slightly to make this easier.
Optional to dip in dark chocolate or sprinkle. You could also roll them in coconut or other chopped seeds/nuts when wet. In the picture above I’ve sprinkled some Irish sea salt for extra crunch.
These take just a few minutes to measure and mix the ingredients and then some time to roll into balls.
These are naturally gluten free, sugar free, vegan (use agave syrup instead of honey), raw and tasty I swear!
The flax, chia and nut butter are high in proteins.
These will keep well in the fridge and so handy for a snack or treat on the go, that’s if they last!
