Choc Mint Protein Balls

Full of satisfying good fats, protein to keep you going, and it’s plant based. Choc mint is one of my favourite flavours. I love the coolness of the pure peppermint with a kick of cacao. Mwah! Simple recipe yet soooo delicious!

I used doterra peppermint oil, it’s a beautiful high quality oil but you can use what ever you have on hand. Vanilla protein powder along with medjool dates give the bliss balls a luscious almost chewy feel with caramel undertones.

Ingredients

12 Medjool dates

1/3 c Cashews

1/2c Macadamias

1 heaped tbs vanilla protein powder ( I used a plant based one called Amazonia RAW Protein Isolate Vanilla )

2 tbs cacao powder

6 drops doterra peppermint oil

Pinch of salt

1 tbs coconut oil

1c Shredded coconut for rolling

Method

Throw it all into someone’s food processor and whiz until clumps together slightly.

Place coconut into a shallow bowl

Roll mixture into bite sized balls and roll in the coconut.

Store in the fridge and don’t forget to share!
