I am so excited to share this recipe with you all and especially walk you through the process in how I made these beautiful and tasty bites!
I have made these power balls with different ingredients and blending them in different ways to get the perfect texture and taste and after a few rounds I think I finally got it down to a science!
I love making these as a part of my meal prep for the week! They make such a great snack to take on the go, or a great sweet treat after dinner, they are also a great pre-workout bite that will keep you fueled and focused throughout your workout!
1/2 cup Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 Sunflower Seeds
1/4 cup Chia Seeds
1/2 Shredded Coconut
1 tablespoon Spirulina
1 Scoop Aloha Vanilla Plant Protein
1 heaping tablespoon Coconut Butter
6 Pitted Dates
2-3 tablespoon water
Blend the pumpkin, Sunflower and Chia seeds along with the Coconut in the food processor until it is thoroughly chopped into tiny pieces. When you pick it up with your fingers it should START to stick together a bit.
Add Spirulina, Protein , Coconut Butter and 1/2 of the dates and blend again for a minute or two
Check the mixture to see if it is sticking together with your fingers. If it still is not sticking together, add the other 3 dates.
IMPORTANT: This is also when I added about 3 tablespoons of water! After I mixed it together one more time I could see it clumping together as it was mixing so I stopped the processor.
Out came the PERFECT consistency!
I rolled 1/2 of the Protein Balls in Bee Pollen and 1/2 in Shredded Coconut. Totally your choice on IF and WHAT you want to roll them in so have fun with that!
NOTE: If you do not have Aloha protein, any plant based protein will be just fine. If you do not have any, you can also use Coconut or Almond Flour as an easy replacement.
Have SO much fun making these nutritious bites and be sure to tag me when you do!
