Ingredients

  • ¼ cup vegan vanilla protein powder*
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup coconut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Put all ingredients in a mini chopper/processor and pulse a few times to incorporate.
    Coconut butter, hemp seeds, vanilla protein powder, maple syrup, water and cinnamon in a food processor.
  • Give the dough a stir and start to roll the mixture (with your hands) into 1 tbsp sized balls. It should make about 8. If the dough is too crumbly add a few drops of water.
    A tablespoon is used to scoop proportionate amounts of mixture out that are then shaped into balls to create coconut protein balls.
  • Eat right away or store in an airtight container at room temp for 3-4 days. For longer storage, store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 week or in the freezer for 2-3 months.

Notes
