Superfood Protein Bliss Ball

I freaking love these little bite size snacks. I can’t even remember the first time I made them but it was easily 3+ years ago. I find them to be so versatile and easy to make, what’s not to love?!

Whenever I make these, I browse my kitchen to see what ingredients I have on hand and start brainstorming. As long as you have protein powder and some kind of binding ingredient, that’s really all you need to get going.

When I found the bag of goji berries in my cabinet, I immediately thought “superfoods”. I always  have chia seeds in stock so I knew I could make this work. Choosing which flavor protein to use was a bit tougher, but I ended up with chocolate. Cookies and Cream just didn’t seem right, and vanilla didn’t exactly excite my taste buds.

These are jam packed with healthy vitamins and nutrients our bodies need.

Protein powder – protein….obviously
Almond butter – healthy fats, calcium, magnesium
Goji berries – vitamin C, fiber, iron, zinc, antioxidants
Chia seeds – fiber, protein, healthy fats, magnesium

Ingredients:

3/4 cup almond butter
1 cup chocolate protein powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup dried goji berries
1 tbsp raw honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon
unsweetened shredded coconut for topping

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except for the shredded coconut and mix well. Don’t be afraid to get dirty, it might be easiest to just use your hands!
  2. Take a small amount of batter into your hand and start rolling it into a smooth ball. You can leave it as is or roll it around in some shredded coconut. This recipe made 12 balls.
  3. Freeze for about an hour then store in the fridge!
