Laziest Energy Balls

Hey hey hey

Wednesday Hump Day is upon us and what better way to get that added boost than to make these bad boys.

Back when I lived in London, I had a NutriBullet and I used to make my favourite Hemp Cacao Orange Energy Balls all of the time.

Click here for the recipe to the below.

I adore these and they are nutritionally incredible!

The only problem I have is that you need a super powerful processor and my current one in Boston isn’t the best.

Soooo…

I have come up with a new recipe.

These Plant Based Protein Balls contain only 4 ingredients and you don’t need a food processor or a blender to make them.

Genius I know LAWL

The base is pretty simple to make, literally takes 5 minutes, and only takes two spoon, a bowl and a plate…very little clean up also!

Cleaning out a food processor can be time consuming and an arduous task to say the least so this way, you have more time and energy to eat your creation and enjoy your day.

Plant Based Protein Balls

I said they have four ingredients and I did not lie…so simple

I do not sponsor Corn Flakes…it just happens to always be the back drop haha

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops of Plant Based Protein (26g)
  • 1 tablespoon of Almond Milk
  • 1.5 tablespoons of Organic Maple Syrup
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of Natural no added sugar Almond Butter

I use Sprout Living Epic Protein Original for Protein Balls and their Vanilla Lucuma flavour in Smoothies…hands down the best Plant Protein on the market!

This Almond Butter you make yourself in Whole Foods…one ingredient and you can see it being grounded…obsessed!

Feel free to substitute in Peanut Butter or another type of Nut Butter

Method

I mixed them in in the order I wrote the ingredients list but genuinely it is just a case of mixing the four ingredients together until they form a dough ball like the below.

Once the mixture is combined, simply take mini chunks and roll into balls.

Once the balls have been formed, you can decorate as you please.

I chose Shredded Coconut and Cacao Nibs but alternatively you could add Chia Seeds, Chocolate Chips or even dip it in melted chocolate.

This recipe makes 8 but you could half it or double it, depending on who you are feeding.

I purposefully made this amount as I would have eaten them all in one go.

Not unhealthy at all haha but last night after the gym I inhaled the world’s largest salad so probably didn’t need any extra food 🙂

Hope this gave you some inspo to help get that extra Protein into your day post workout…in a much more delicious way.

Only three days left of this challenge 😮
