Paleo Raw Protein Coconut Balls

Hey Everyone,

What can I say about these delicious raw protein balls, they are divine & so fast and easy to make.

Perfect to pop into your bag for a Pre/Post gym snack.

What you will need

  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • ¼ cup raisins (or dried cherries) soaked in hot water for 5 minutes
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes, plus another ¼ cup for rolling (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cinnamon to taste (about ¼ teaspoon)
  • 1½ tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon coconut butter( or peanut butter)
  • Dark Chocolate melted (optional)
Instructions
  • Combine all three nuts in a food processor( I used a blender) and pulse a few times until they are finely chopped.
  • Add remaining ingredients (except additional ¼ cup coconut flakes for rolling) to the food processor and process until the mixture comes together and starts to stick. This will only take about 1 minute.
  • Transfer mixture to a small bowl.
  • Pour remaining coconut flakes into a dish.
  • Roll nut mixture into balls using your hands then place in the dish and roll in coconut flakes( roll in dark chocolate before coconut flakes)
  • You can eat them as is or transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate to firm them up a bit.
  • Once refrigerated for about an hour, they can be wrapped up individually for easy snacking.
 
If you don’t have coconut butter, use additional coconut flakes and a bit more honey. It just acts as another binding and sweetening agent or peanut butter.
