3 Ingredient Protein Balls.

Hello … 

Today I am going to share a completely tempting snack that will have your mouth watering in seconds.

I often want to snack on something sweet in between meals and keeps me going until I sit down to chomp away on the next main meal of the day. Sometimes it can become scary if there isn't anything healthy of hand, which can result in me reaching for absolutely any sweet treat at hand.

Overtime I have learnt that it is easy to avoid unnecessary calories and to only eat when needed and to not go overboard with your food for the day.

These scrumptious almond and date protein balls are so simple to make and easy to make in bulk, so that there are always some ready on hand. These completely natural balls, taste almost similar to the ones that you would buy in a health food shop.

All you need is a nut butter of your choice, dates and almond meal - blitz everything together in a food processor and then start rolling those balls!

3 Ingredient Protein Balls 
1/2 cup dates 
1/2 cup almond meal 
1/4 cup nut butter 

Add all of the ingredients into a food processor. Blend on high speed until everything is slightly clumped together. Scoop about 1 tablespoon of the mixture into the palm of your hands, give it a good squeeze to ensure that everything sticks together, then proceed to roll in a circular motion to form a ball. 
Store in an air tight container in the fridge.

I hope you give these Protein Balls a whirl and spice up the flavours with different flavoured nut butters, blitz in some nuts instead of rolling or adding in some dark chocolate chips as a naughty extra! 

Bon Appétit!
