These super fudgy gingerbread spiced protein balls are only made out of a few ingredients and the ultimate energy booster you need when you‘re feeling kind of low.
They are the perfect snack for in-between, when you are on the go, as an energy booster or simply for when you are craving something sweet. I personally love to eat them before workouts or as an afternoon snack.
They are easy to make and you won‘t be able to make anything wrong and are ready in less than 15 minutes, requiring ONLY TWO STEPS!!!!
Also, they are sugar, oil and of course dairy-free.
If you are not a fan on gingerbread spice you can simply leave out this ingredient.
In this recipe I used hemp protein powder from myprotein but feel free to use any protein powder you like. If you use vanilla protein powder though I recommend to omit the bourbon vanilla. If you don‘t have bourbon vanilla at home you can substitute it with vanilla extract or leave it out completely.
Also, feel free to use any nut butter you prefer. I used cashew butter but you can of course use for example almond, peanut or hazelnutbutter as well.
Instead of the coconut flour you could use ground nuts like ground almonds, hazelnuts or walnuts.
For the coating I used sesame seeds and cocoa powder. If you prefer something else you could omit the sesame seeds or cocoa powder, toss the energy balls in coconut sugar, or shredded coconut. Feel free to improvise!
130 g protein powder
100 g banana
0,5 tsp bourbon vanilla
100 g cashew butter
50 g agave sirup
3 Tbsp plant based milk
2 Tbsp coconut flour
3-4 tsp gingerbread spice
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
In your food processor mix all the ingredients and blend blend blend until a sticky dough ball forms.
Form little balls with your hands (this works best when moistening your hands with a little bit of water).
If you want the sesame and cocoa powder coating, first roll the balls in sesame seeds to make sure the sesame seeds will keep sticking and then roll in cocoa powder.
