Looking for a high-protein snack that is easy to make and tastes great? Try this fitness recipe for protein almond snack balls.
2 tbsp all-natural almond butter
1 scoop protein powderof choice (vanilla, chocolate or no flavor is best in this recipe)
2 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes (keep 1 tbsp aside for dipping)
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp cacao powder
3 whole almonds
Coconut oil, unrefined, cold-pressed
In a bowl, combine all ingredients except for the last two (using your hands is totally acceptable; just make sure you wash them first.)
In a small bowl or plate, pour remaining coconut flakes and cinnamon. Set aside for dipping.
Rub a little coconut oil in your palms to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands when you roll into balls.
Take 1/3 of the mix, and roll into balls. Then dip and roll into the coconut-cinnamon mixture.
Place one whole almond on each protein ball. Place in freezer for 10 minutes before serving. Then eat. Makes 4 balls.
