Vanilla Almond Warrior Balls

Hey wellness warriors,

If you’ve tried my Cocoanut Warrior Balls and liked them, you are going to LOVE these. I felt like my first recipe had too much protein powder, leaving a weird aftertaste so I reduced it from 1/2 to 1/3 cup and added 2 tbsp hemp seeds. You can get pretty creative with this kind of no-bake snack and still have an awesome final product 🙂

Prep Time: 10 min + 1 hour refrigeration

Nutritional Stats: Per ball: 166 calories, 5 g protein, 9 g carbs, 12 g fat

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp agave
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium-large sized bowl.
  2. Melt coconut oil in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Combine with nut butter and sweetener.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry and combine until mixture is evenly distributed and crumbly.
  4. Form into 15 balls (~30 g each) and arrange on a baking sheet.
  5. Refrigerate for ~1 hour. Grab. Go. Nom!

I only got 15 balls out of this recipe vs. 16 with the last version. You could stretch it out but I prefer them to be at least this size.
