PB Cookie Dough Protein Balls (Sugar-Free, Vegan)
I wanted to create a quick snack that was based on protein, fat and fibre and that was sugar free. These are full of fibre with the oats, nuts and hemp hearts while giving you the protein and healthy fats to balance blood sugar and keep me and my clients feeling full and satiated for hours in between meals. Skip to the bottom for my easy to follow video!
First, you will blend the oats into an oat flower, add the cashews (or other nut, make sure you are always using raw nuts!) and blend with oats.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, except the coconut oil, blend for 1 minute or until combined.
Add the coconut oil, teaspoon by teaspoon until it reaches your desired smooth texture.
Place in the fridge for 10 - 15 minutes to set up, this will make it easier to roll into balls. Once firm, roll the mixture into balls, I like to use about a teaspoon each ball.
Sprinkle with additional cinnamon or cocoa :)
Store in fridge or freezer for on-the-go protein, fat and fibre packed snacks!
