Puffed Quinoa Protein Bites

Ingredients (~15 protein balls):

  •  44g (1 1/2 scoops) Genuine Health’s Vanilla Vegan Protein Powder
  • 16g (1/2 scoop) Genuine Health’s Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder
    ** You could use all of the same flavour – all vanilla or chocolate here. I just ran out of chocolate! Just make sure that you use a total of 2 scoops protein powder.**
  • 1 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup natural almond butter
  • 1 1/2 cup almond milk
  • ~13 pitted dates, microwave with a little water (~2tbsp) to soften and mash until smooth consistency
  • 3/4 cup puffed quinoa (found at bulk barn)
  • 1/3 cup oats (I used Hilray Oats)
  • 1 tbsp (heeping) of natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • Pinch of ground sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

In one large mixing bowl, combine and mix all ingredients thoroughly. Add dark chocolate chips at the end if desired. Roll into balls (drizzle with dark chocolate if desired) and store in the refrigerator until consumption.

Enjoy 🙂
