Directions

Simple yet filling, these energizing protein balls could work as a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. Sacha inchi is the best known source of plant protein for healthy muscle mass, while cacao is a great energy booster.

  3. Drain the softened dates from the water.(1 minute)
  4. Add the cashews, dates, coconut oil, cacao powder, sacha inchi powder, and chia seeds into a blender or food processor. Blend until you get a smooth consistency, adding milk as needed.(5 minutes)
  5. Wet hands with water and then roll the mixture into small balls.(5 minutes)
  6. Sprinkle with coconut shreds if desired.(1 minute)
  7. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
