Now that baby Skinner has arrived, I'm in dire need of fast and easy to grab protein-rich snacks.

I made these the other day and loved the chocolate and tahini combination with the crunch of the sunflower seeds.

Completely nut free, grain free and refined sugar-free, they make the perfect 3 pm pick-me-up, ideal lunch box filler or delicious 2 am breastfeeding snack!

 

Makes: 16 Balls

Time: 10 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla or chocolate protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp hulled tahini
  • 2 Tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a food processor, place seeds, protein powder, cacao and salt and mix until seeds finely chopped (I like mine to stay slightly chunky for crunch).

2. Add coconut oil, tahini and rice malt syrup then pulse to combine.

3. Roll into balls and place in the fridge for an hour to harden.

Balls will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and in the freezer for 3 months.
