Protein Power Balls


by Lindsay Rosenblatt

This quick breakfast looks like a cookie and tastes like a treat, but functions as protein-fueled nourishment. Keep in the refrigerator and enjoy 1-2 as a healthy snack, or pre-workout fuel.

These no-bake energy bites are delicious, with your morning coffee, or take on the go. Make a batch to last all week!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond or cashew butter

  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup almond flour

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2-3 scoops Dr. Nancy's Protein Powder*

  • 1/2 cup carob chocolate chips

  • 2-3 tbsp. water

 

Preparation:

1) Place the protein powder, nut butter, and flour into a large bowl with the coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla extract and honey.

2) Add 2 tablespoons of water and stir until a stiff dough forms. If the mixture is too dry, add additional water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

3) Stir in the carob chips, and using a teaspoon, form dough into balls. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

4) Chill for at least 30 minutes, then serve.

5) Store any extras in the refrigerator.
