almonds cashews coconut dates gluten free protein balls recipes sesame snacks vanilla May 16, 2018

Who doesn't love a protein ball? They are quick, easy and a great way to get a snack in that is high in protein and healthy fats to help satiate you and balance your blood sugar levels in between meals. These ones are my favourite because they taste like those sesame bars you can buy at the servo's! Except made with much more wholesome and nutritious ingredients. A serving size for a snack is 2 balls but remember these are considered more of a treat snack so shouldn't appear daily on the food diary! Keep in the freezer and whip two out for a snack a couple of times a week.  

Makes 20 balls


1 cup almond meal
1 cup cashews
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup tahini (hulled)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds (toasted if time permits)
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
pinch of salt


Blitz all ingredients in a high speed blender until the mixture comes together (add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed). Roll into balls and store in the fridge for 5 days or months in the freezer.
