Lemon & Poppyseed go so well together I HAD to try to put them in protein balls. The thing is… I figured what if we just had the feeling of poppyseeds but had something WAY better for you in there. Would it work?? Well it did!

1 Cup Vanilla Protein — Here’s a link to the one I LOVE
1 Cup Almond or Peanut Butter
3/4 Cup Coconut Nectar, Honey or Agave Nectar –
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Oil (make sure it’s edible)
1 Lemon, zested & juiced
1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
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
The easiest way to do this is to put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until fully blended.
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.
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.
