Chai Protein Balls

October 2, 2018

I used to LOVE Chai lattes BUT then I realized how much sugar was in them. I had to give them up. When I found Chai protein I was hooked! These little babies remind me of fall & winter and make me feel all cozy inside. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Chai Protein – 1 Cup — Here’s a link to the one I LOVE

Almond or Peanut Butter – 1 Cup

Coconut Nectar, Honey or Agave Nectar – 1/2 Cup

Chia Seeds – 1/4 Cup

Optional Toppings:

Mini Dark Chocolate Chips

Pumpkin Seeds

Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

 

  1. If you are using a “natural” nut butter that separates (which I would recommend for health reasons), I recommend mixing your nut butter so it’s back to a homogeneous mixture before measuring. i.e. no dry spots and no oily spots

  2. The easiest way to do this is to put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until fully blended.

  3. Once mixed, I use a tablespoon cookie scoop (here’s one I love) to make the mixture into balls & pop them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. If you don’t have a cookie scoop just use a spoon & roll them into balls.

  4. If you’re choosing to add toppings, just roll the protein balls in whichever one you choose now.

  5. I think they taste the best when they are cold so I store them in the freezer. Pop the whole cookie sheet into the freezer and once frozen you can store them in a container.

  6. Enjoy!
