Peanut butter protein balls are a great post workout snack.
Oats are a great source of soluble fibre that will keep you regular, lower cholesterol and fill you up for hours. Nut butters are packed with protein that keeps your body sustained for hours.
Adding protein to your diet will also have a stabilising effect on blood sugar and keep you satisfied and energised. These power balls are also rich in antioxidants, fibre and minerals that include magnesium, potassium, folate, niacin and folate that your body needs for optimum health and vitality.
120 g fresh, pitted dates
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon Protein powder
150 g peanut butter or your choice of nut butter (almond, macadamia etc)
add a little water to mix if needed
Combine dates, oats, coconut and protein powder into a food processor or blender.
Mix through until the mixture looks like crumbs and dates have mixed through the oats.
Remove the mixture and place into a large bowl.
Add the nut butter and mix through until combined. Add more water if needed to mix into a dough.
Scoop out 12 portions roll into balls and roll in chopped nuts, oats, granola or coconut.
I store mine in the freezer and eat them frozen on a hot day.
Don’t be afraid to experiment try almond meal instead of oats or add a pinch of cinnamon. You’ll soon work out your own favourite recipe and will be making a batch every week.
