Vegan-Friendly Energy Protein Balls
Ingredients for 15 balls
- 1/2 cup natural nut butter (must have oil)
- 1/2 cup raw honey (or maple, agave to make it vegan)
- 2/3 cup crushed roasted almonds (or nut of your choice) – you can omit or reduce to lessen calories
- 1 cup raw rolled oats
- 4 scoops (~2/3 cup) vegan protein powder (I used Blogilates sweet cream flavor)
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries, unsweetened
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
Mix together the Wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
In a larger bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. If needed, place whole, roasted almonds in a plastic bag and crush them. Add the wet ingredients, and using a spatula, mix and mash the ingredients until powder is NO longer visible. This will be difficult and it will probably take about 5 minutes. Once mixed, dampen your hands with a little water, then massage the ingredients, ensure the mixture has evenly distributed the ingredients.
Use an ice cream scoop or spoon to carve out equal sized amounts and roll them into a ball. Repeat until all the ingredients have been used.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer for longer whenever you want a sweet treat!
