Cupid Protein Orbs

Great source of protein and energy! I like to pack couple of these orbs with me on my training days and snack on one or two before I hit the gym. I find that they really help keep my energy during tough workouts.
Servings 20

Ingredients

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/3 cup hemp hearts/seeds
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup cocao nibs
  • 1 scoop of Vega Sport Performance Protein chocolate or your favourite plant based protein
  • 8 soft pitted dates
  • about 1/2 cup of shredded coconut for rolling

Instructions

  • If you have the time pre-soak the walnuts and pumpkin seeds for about 4 hours, then rinse well.
  • This step is not crucial, however soaking makes it easier on your digestive track ;)
  • Then process nuts and seeds in a food processor until little sticky but still bit crumbly.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients into the processor and combine well.
  • Once you have a dough consistency you are ready to start rolling.
  • Form about golf ball size balls and then roll in coconut flakes.
