Have a crush and in the mood for a date?
Us too. But not the kind you're thinking. We're actually talking about these scrumptious, protein-packed, no-bake-necessary protein balls that we love to infuse the original crush to, for that punch of energy and a little bit of sweet.
1-3 original #CrushedTonic (original flavor, more sachets for more protein)
3.5 cups of rolled oats (GF)
1/2 cup shredded coconut unsweetened.
1/2 cup shredded dates (can add more)
1 T honey
4 T raw cacao powder (not cocoa)
3 T coconut sugar
1/2 or full jar of nut butter
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate bits or cacao nibs
2 T chia seeds
3 T ground flax
Water (add for consistency while mixing, can also use less PB and more water to reduce amount of fat)
1 T vanilla paste or powder (optional)
1 cup of coconut flakes
In a big bowl, mix all of the ingredients below. Knead through the mound, and then shape bite-sized balls using your hands. After, we like to keep in the fridge for about 30 minutes so they get cool (and the nut butter hardens a bit). Roll each ball on a tray dusted with coconut flakes.
