Chocolate Protein Energy Balls

Man, do I have an amazing recipe for you today!


The addition of chocolate protein powder takes the standard energy ball to the next level. It’s like protein powder mixed with Lara bar goodness.


3/4 cup nuts (I did one batch with cashews and another with walnuts = both awesome)
1 1/3 cups pitted dates (either whole or chopped)
1 t vanilla
1 t sea salt
1 scoop chocolate protein powder

1. Place all ingredients in food processor
2. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs

3. Form mixture into ball shapes
4. Keep in refrigerator

Perfect for a protein boost after your workout or snack or healthy dessert.
