Sunbutter Chocolate Protein Balls

 

I can easily say that we are a nut butter obsessed family! We love all kinds of nut and seed butter and use them literally everyday! Smoothies, yogurts, breads you name it. We will always find a way to add them to our meals! :)

Among all kinds of nut/seed butter, Sunflower butter (or simply Sunbutter is one of my favorites). Sunbutter is easier to digest and contains more unsaturated fat, magnesium and vitamin E than than regular peanut butter! Which is a plus, specially for the kids!

These Protein balls are so easy to make and pack important nutrients (hello Vitamin E and Magnesium).

Sunbutter+protein+balls

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter

  • 1/2 cup vanilla plant based protein powder

  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut  

  • 1 Tbsp of hemp seeds 

  • 1 Tbsp of cacao powder 

  • Stevia (optional)

Directions:

Place all ingredients in the blender (or food processor). Once it’s all mixed, make little balls and pass it in shredded coconut, hemp seeds or the flakes of your choice. I like using freeze dried fruits like strawberries and raspberries to add a sour touch to it.
