These protein date balls are the perfect mid-day snack, post-workout snack, and even dessert. Date balls are so versatile and healthy you can feel good eating them anytime of the day.
They’re packed with tons of protein from the two types of nuts – almonds and walnuts – and protein powder. Plus, you’ll get an extra boost of fiber, vitamins and minerals from the medjool dates and coconut flakes!
I love these because they’re SO simple to make, the flavor packs a punch, and they’re a great grab-and-go quick snack. Because of the fiber in the dates, they’re actually a little filling despite their size so they’re great post-workout.
They literally could not be easier. Gather all the ingredients and pit the dates. Then toss it all into the food processor and blend up! Blend them about 1 minute, and then scoop about 1.5 tablespoons worth and roll into a ball. boom! That’s all you have to do!
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tbsp water
