Chocolate Caramel Protein Balls
Updated: Feb 4
Makes 12 servings
1 1/2 cup dates, chopped and pitted
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 scoop protein powder
2 Tbsp almonds, finely chopped
1/2 cup nut butter, almond or peanut
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Sprinkle of salt
In a food processor, blend dates until smoothed out and starting to form a ball,
scraping sides as required. Add maple syrup, protein powder, one tablespoon of
almonds, and nut butter. Process until combined, scraping sides as required.
Depending on how sticky your dates are, if the mixture feels too dry, add maple
syrup and adjust until you have a slightly sticky consistency. Roll into balls. Melt coconut oil and chocolate chips then coat the balls in melted chocolate. Spread chocolate covered balls out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Top with a sprinkle of salt and remaining almonds. Freeze for at least 30 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Store balls in an air tight container in the freezer for up to two weeks.
