Healthy Protein Bliss Balls

Little protein bites! They’re so easy to make and they hit the spot when I need a sweet fix. I’ll roll them in whatever sounds interesting… chocolate covered cacao nibs, matcha green tea powder, pecans, roasted coconut flakes and sesame seeds. The base is made from soft medjool dates, organic peanut butter, coconut butter, vanilla and almond extract, honey, garbanzo bean flour and splash of water. Lots of protein and a healthy dose of good fats to keep you going. They’re silky smooth!

Ingredients:
8 soft dates
1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour
2 tbsp smooth organic peanut butter
2 tbsp raw honey
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tbsp water (may need more)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1/4 tsp almond extract
*desired toppings for rolling

Warm the coconut butter in a glass bowl set over a small saucepan of simmering water until it’s semi-soft. Remove from the heat, and add to a food processor with the rest the the ingredients. Blend until mixture resembles a smooth paste. Ingredients vary, so add a bit more garbanzo flour or water if necessary. Using your hands, roll the mixture into 12 balls, then roll each one in your desired topping. Coat thoroughly. Place in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to set. Story any leftover truffles in the fridge.
