PROTEIN POWER BALLS

 
 
 
 

What

100g almonds 

200g dates 

2tbs raw coco powder 

1tbs coconut oil 

1tbs almond butter 

30g scoop of cricket powder 

30g Desiccated coconut
+ extra for coating

Handful of dried crickets
(for the hardcore)

How

1. BOIL
Bring a pan up to boil and add the dates. Boil for around 10 minutes until the dates have softened. Drain water and leave to cool. 

2. BLITZ
Add the almonds to a blender and lightly blitz them. This will make the almonds easier to blend with the other ingredients. 

Add the boiled dates, lightly blitzed almonds, coconut oil, almond butter, cricket powder, desiccated coconut and a handful of dried crickets (if you want to add a bit more protein and crunch). Give it a good blitz until it’s smooth and well combined. 

3. BALLS
When the mixture has become soft and slightly sticky roll it into balls. Dunk the balls in desiccated coconut (to get the best coverage you may want to slightly wet the outside of the balls with water – works a treat).

If you can refrain from eating them all immediately, you can store them in an airtight container. Or you can do what we did and inhale them right away. πŸ€˜
