Vanilla & blueberry/ cinnamon balls


Good morning! I have been working on some new raw ball recipes for you guys and I kind of have to say I have perfected them! Apart from the irritable chocolate I normally cover them in, these balls are sugar free and packed with protein and healthy vitamins! They are also good for your gut health as I have used  edible mud ( do not be put off by it, it is completely flavourless) and this is a little teaspoon of good bacteria for your body. I have also used one of my favourite products–> Rejuvenated H3O in which you can purchase on their website and use code “new” for a 10% discount! So do make sure you head over to their page to browse their lovely products.

Raw protein balls are probably one of my favourite things to make as they are perfect little healthy snacks to keep in the fridge- and they are super tasty! So today I am sharing 2 of my new recipes I have been working on which use the same foundation of ingredients but are different in taste. The primary flavours in the first recipe are vanilla and blueberry and the second recipe is vanilla and cinnamon. Both recipes are great sources of protein and are high in antioxidants.

Vanilla and blueberry protein balls

Ingredients

Vanilla and cinnamon protein balls

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup of ground almonds
  • 3 level tablespoons of missfitsnutrition vegan vanilla protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon of edible mud
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 4 tablespoons of cashew milk
  • 80g of either white or dark vegan chocolate (whichever is preferred)
  • chopped hazelnuts to decorate (optional)

 

The method is very easy and can applied to both recipes:

Method

  • In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and mix in together
  • Add the vanilla essence and the 4 tablespoons of cashew milk. Using a teaspoon, combine the mixture, then using your hands, mould into one large ball. This may take a few minutes.
  • You will then be able to tear off parts of the mix to roll around 10 raw balls (depending on the size you want them).
  • Roll and place them on to a sheet of baking paper over a plate and leave in the fridge to cool for around 20-30 minutes.
  • Whilst the balls are cooling, melt your 80g of dark or white chocolate (I normally melt mine the old school way by placing the chocolate in a bowl over boiling water). Note: you can also enjoy these treats without the chocolate coating.
  • Once the chocolate is melted, you can then cover each ball by placing it in the melted chocolate bowl, using 2 teaspoons to coat it.
  • Place the covered balls back on to the baking paper and cover with chopped hazelnuts if you wish. For the blueberries balls I just sprinkled some extra blueberry powder on top.
  • Place back in the fridge and allow to cool for 1 hour.
  • These healthy plant based treats will stay fresh in the fridge for 5 days.
