Makes 14 balls

Macros: 138 kcal, fat 4g, carbs 21g, fibre 3g, protein 5g

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dried unsweetened apple rings

  • 1 cup packed pitted dates

  • ½ cup raw almonds

  • 2 tablespoons raw almond butter

  • ½ tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 scoop (1/4 cup) vanilla protein powder of choice

  • 1 small gala apple, cored and chopped

  • pinch of salt

  • Optional Coatings (choose one or two):

  • ¼ cup gluten free rolled oats

  • 2 tablespoons granola of choice

  • ¼ cup crushed almonds

  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar

Directions:

Soak dates in hot water for 10-15 minutes to soften, then drain.

  1. Add dates, apple rings, almonds, almond butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, protein powder, and chopped apple to a food processor and process for 1-3 minutes, scraping the sides of the food processor with a spatula as needed.

  2. You should have a sticky but mostly smooth batter.

  3. Scoop the batter out into a bowl and using a tablespoon measure, scoop a slightly smaller than golf ball sized portion and roll into a ball using the palms of your hands. It sometimes helps to have slightly wet hands if the batter is extra sticky.

  4. Once you have made a little ball, roll the ball into the coating of choice (oats, granola, crushed almonds, etc.), and place the ball on a cookie sheet covered in wax/parchment paper.

  5. Do this with the rest of the batter to make around 14 balls.

  6. Enjoy!

Notes: Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freezer for up to 3 months.
