Apricot, Cranberry & Coconut Balls

Protein balls have a satiating combination of protein, good carbs, healthy fats, and are high in fibre. Each ball offers you between 100-200 calories depending on the ingredients. Protein balls are quick and easy to make and can be a satisfying snack to hold you over until your next meal. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed mix
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut
  • 6-7 dried apricots
  • Small handful of dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup whole almonds
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon liquid coconut oil

Method:

  1. Place oats, flaxseed, shredded coconut, honey, vanilla, cinnamon and coconut oil in a food processor to combine.
  2. Add apricots, cranberries and almonds in food processor, combine to your liking of texture.
  3. Pour mixture into a bowl.
  4. With your hands knead the dough until well combined. Form dough into 8-10 even balls.
  5. Store in the fridge up to 7 days in an airtight container or you can freeze them. Enjoy!

 

Note: If the protein ball mixture seems a little too dry or crumbly, add more coconut oil, a teaspoon at a time, until the mixture forms well together.
