COCOA ALMOND PROTEIN BALLS
April 23, 2019 | snacks, desserts
I discovered the ultimate snack when you hit that time of the day when you need a quick fix that will actually fill you up. Like when you need a snack, but have zero time and need something instantly! I’m all for eating mindfully, which means mindfully choosing, preparing and siting down to eat. However, as a mom sometimes you do need a little pop in your mouth burst of energy.
I have made other energy balls before, but because the base is almond flour, these are super high in protein which really helps to fill you up. Normally I would prefer something with some sort of grain in it like oats. But I came up with this because I was having friends over for coffee on the weekend and I needed something to serve with it that was Passover friendly. I didn’t have time to bake, so thought this would be super easy and quick.
They’re not too sweet, the only sweetness in here comes from dates actually. I was worried they would be too bitter, but they were perfect. In my opinion, they are definitely not a dessert, just a great snack. If you want to try something similar, but more dessert-like, try my date truffle balls which are on my instagram feed!
