Choc-Mint Hemp Seed Protein Balls

Ingredients:

  • 12 Medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp. Hemp seeds*
  • 1 tbsp. cacao butter (6 buttons)
  •  1 cup walnuts
  • 20 drops pure peppermint extract*
  • 3 tbsps. cacao powder
  • Mixture of your favourite toppings to coat. I used desiccated coconut, Dutch pure cocoa and a cape seed mix (sesame, flaxseed, poppy, sunflower)

Method:

Blitz all the ingredients in a food processor until the mixture sticks and holds together in the palm of your hand then shape into balls before rolling in your favourite topping.  Super easy and quick to make! I spooned 1 tbsp. of mixture to make each ball which yielded 20! Enjoy!

  • Hemp seeds and pure peppermint extract can be found at Organic Grocers or Health Food stores.

A combination of low GI dried fruit, nuts, seeds and the all important super foods, this muesli will keep you full all morning and give you that much needed burst of energy we all need to start the day. The beauty of this recipe is it can be changed to suit your tastes, mood and what you have left in your pantry! I highly recommend buying nuts, seeds and dried fruit in bulk so you're not not needing to replace these foods too frequently. You will also save time and energy better spent squeezing in another workout! I prepare a batch of this muesli mix in a 3 litre container and it lasts me ages! Serve with fresh berries, grated green apple, natural yoghurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Low fat dairy, soy or unsweetened almond milk is optional OR coconut water!
