Chocolate Protein Balls

I wanted to make a sweet treat to share with some old work colleagues when I visited them. I wasn't finding what I wanted on the internet so I made this recipe up and it turned out pretty good!

  • 40g Raw Almonds, chopped into small pieces
  • 30g 85% Dark Chocolate,chopped into small pieces
  • 2 sachets Juice Plus Complete dutch chocolate
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Flaxseed
  • 1 Tablespoon Cocoa or Cacao
  • 1/8th teaspoon Pure Stevia Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil, melted then cooled
  • 1/4 cup Almond or Coconut milk
To coat:
  • About 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa and 2 Tablespoons almond meal mixed
  1. Place almonds, chocolate, complete, flaxseed, cocoa and stevia in a bowl and mix well
  2. Add coconut oil and Almond/Coconut milk, mix well
  3. It will seem like a very sticky mixture, but the flaxseed works as a binder. Let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Roll into 20 small balls, then coat with the cocoa and almond meal mixture.
  5. Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, or freeze for an easy treat!
