Spirulina Raw Protein Balls September 15 2014 by Simone Denny 1 Comment

These Raw Spirulina Protein Balls are very tasty and are high in protein due to the nuts, seeds, spirulina and natural protein powder. Great to eat prior to workouts, for busy people on the run or pregnant and breastfeeding women. The Balls actually look a bit greener than these photos show them to be.

Ingredients:

  • 1 C of almonds
  • 1 Cup of dates
  • 1/2 Cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 Cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 Cup of Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 C of desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tablespooons of Nut Butter (I use Almond Butter)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Protein Powder (I use Eden Raw Vegan Power Protein, alternatively Bodysculpt for Women (non vegan)
  • 1/3 Cup of Coconut Oil (generous serving)
  • 1/3 - 1/2 Cup of 100% Maple Syrup or Honey
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon of Lifestream Organic Spirulina Powder

Method:

Soak Dates for 10 minutes in hot water

Grind nuts, seeds and coconut in a food processor to a course flour consistency

Add spirulina powder and protein powder (optional)

Add strained dates and blend mixture

Add coconut oil, nut butter and maple and continue to blend until all ingredients are well mixed

Shape into balls

Roll balls and roll in either hemp seeds, coconut with a a touch to spirulina for colour or leave them plain (I had a   mixture of different types)

Refrigerate until ready to eat

Enjoy!
