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.
- 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
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.
