Teresa's Tahini Protein Balls
Unfortunately many commercial “protein” balls are high in sugar and actually very low in protein. I’ve been playing with a few ingredients and have formulated the best little protein ball to power you through the afternoon.
The ratio of fats, protein and sugars are bang on in this recipe. Low sugar, high protein and a good whack of healthy fats.
Almonds, chia and tahini are also excellent dairy free sources of calcium. It is important to look at dairy free calcium sources if you follow a paleo/ dairy free diet approach. So in summary.. these protein balls... rude not to.
1 cup almonds
1/4 cup black chia seeds
4 tbsp cacao powder
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup collagen protein
Shredded coconut (to roll)
Place almonds, chia seeds, cacao, tahini, protein powder, dates and water into a food processor, pulse until ingredients become sticky and bind well (add more water if ingredients are too dry)
Spoon ingredients into small golf ball size balls, roll in hands and coat in shredded coconut.
Repeat – this mixture will make approximately 10 protein balls.
