#1 Protein Balls  (Page 99) 

Here’s the recipe if you haven’t got it already.  They are easy to make and easy to modify too!

A real quick pick me up or great pre-exercise snack.

2 tbsp. crunchy peanut butter (natural) or use a nut butter to suit you!
1/2 – 1 tbsp. raw honey
1/2 c. protein powder – vanilla works well (optional)
1 tbsp. raw almonds – smashed or flaked or use ground almonds
1 tbsp. dried cranberries or gojo berries
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
3/4 c. wholegrain oats or oatbran (oatbran produces a finer texture)
Water or cold green tea to mix approx. 1/4 – 1/2c.

Optional add ins
1 tbsp. mixed seeds – sunflower, pumpkin, chia
1/2 tbsp. ground flax or LSA

Chocolate version
Use chocolate protein powder and 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder

Option 1:– Make by hand.  Use a large mixing bowl and sturdy wooden spoon and get a great workout!

Option 2:– Use a food processor, which will result in a much finer texture, be careful not to over process.

Whichever option you choose
Place all the ingredients with the exception of the water or green tea in the bowl or blender and combine all the ingredients together.  Then slowly add the liquid working the mixture or pulsing the food processor until it forms a thick mass.

The mixture needs to be able to hold together but not be too wet. Form into balls and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

For a quicker option: form a log in cling wrap, chill then slice to desired portion size.
