Being on a gluten free diet? Then you need a good healthy, protein packed snack to go to when those cravings hit hard. Who said NO to gluten had to say bye to all sorts of cereals bars and similar.
Let’s be honest they are a fast option when you want a quick snack.
Here is though something way better than processed “food” that hide tons of sugars, preservatives and who know what else. These protein balls are extremely easy to prepare. You can make a whole container in a few minutes and keep them refrigerated for the entire week.
1 tbs Chia seeds
1/2 cup Almond flour (You can blend hazelnut too)
1/2 tsp powdered vanilla 1 tbsp coconut oil
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp almond butter (optional)
If you would like it a bit sweeter, than add a few dates. I prefer to avoid them as they have very high sugars. I really don’t mind the bitter taste of unsweetened cacao.
The prep is super easy, all you have to do is blend the ingredients until they all come together well mixed up. Shape the protein balls and place them in the fridge for a few hours before eating.
It’s a flavor punch! Well balanced with a great amount of healthy fats and nutrients. Perfect for a energy kick right before or after the gym.
ENJOY and let me know down in the comment if you give it a thumbs up ☮
