Healthy snacks: Peanut butter and cashew protein balls
Who’s hungry? I have some yummy protein balls that will fill you up and, just like my goji berry cupackes, they’ll ease that sweet tooth of yours.
A serving of peanut butter has 3 mg of vitamin E, a handy antioxidant, 49 mg of magnesium and 208 mg potassium. And it’s got plenty of fibre too. A serving is what you would put on a piece of toast, not the ten spoonfuls you have straight from the jar (just me?).
Cashews are also high in Vitamins E, K and B6, so put these two together and we have a healthy little snack on out hands that’s super easy to make.
500g almond meal
10 pitted dates
3 tablespoons of tofutti
2 scoops of vanilla or mocha protein powder
2 tablespoons of natural organic peanut butter.
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup crushed cashews
Blend up in a blender/Nutri bullet the pitted dates, tofutti, peanut butter, coconut milk and protein powder.
Once that’s all blended well, place the mixture into a large bowl and add in the almond meal and crushed cashews.
Combine all the ingredients together and roll into your desired size ball. Once you have rolled all the mixture into balls place into the freezer for around 45 minutes.
