This is a great protein boost to have as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack.

Protein Matcha Balls

Around 12 balls

INGREDIENTS

  • 50 g Dates fresh, pitted
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 50 g pear dried
  • 2 tbsp protein powder
  • 2 tsp tahini
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 100 g cashews or pistachios
  • 1 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 100 g pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp organic wheatgrass juice powder
  • some filtered water for mixing

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Add all ingredients EXCEPT DESICCATED COCONUT to food processor.
  • Pulse until well combined.
  • Form into 1-1.5 inch balls by rolling in your hands.
  • Put desiccated coconut in a small bowl. Roll each ball in coconut to cover the surface.
  • Store covered in fridge for 1-2 hours before eating.
  • Refrigerate for up to 1 week.

NOTES

If you are on the AIP diet, make these modifications:

  • Protein powder – dairy free collagen protein is AIP compliant
  • In place of nuts, use Tigernut Flour.
  • In place of Tahini, use coconut yogurt.
  • Pumpkin seed – easiest to leave it out and add a little more protein powder. But you could use chestnuts.
