Vanilla Coconut Energy Balls

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a good weekend, for the first time in a long time I had a calm weekend. Saturday was rainy so it was the perfect excuse to stay inside and test some new recipes. First up on my list was a new energy ball recipe. It's been awhile since I've posted an energy ball recipe so that needed to change pronto.

If you've never had energy balls you are seriously missing out. They're a great pre-workout snack or on-the-go snack because they're small, pack well, and loaded with protein. Plus, they're ridiculously easy to make, like ready in 5 minutes easy. A healthy, quick and delicious snack, what could be better?! 

Vanilla Coconut Energy Balls
  • 1/4 cup coconut peanut butter or almond butter (I used EarthBalance)
  • 6 dates
  • 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 3 Tablespoons vanilla protein powder

In a food processor combine peanut butter, dates, chia seeds, and protein powder.

Process until everything is combined, but not so long that the ingredients have formed a paste. 

Scoop out 1/2-1 Tablespoon sized bites of dough and using your hands roll them into balls. Repeat until all dough is gone. 

Store energy balls in airtight container in the refrigerator.
