Recipe: Homemade Paleo Carob Protein Balls

Just tried making my first Paleo protein balls using a popular recipe from 180 nutrition. It’s so simple to make and only takes only 10 minutes. No baking required. Only setting in the fridge.

Tip:

1. Begin by first soaking your coconut oil and almond butter in the warm bath.  Otherwise in solid form it would be hard to mix.

2. My protein balls were a little hard to bind even after adding more coconut oil so in retrospect I would add a little more almond butter next time. This time I only added 1 tablespoon.

3. Almond spread/paste is not the same thing as Almond butter. Almond butter is healthier made from 100% almonds and soaked in the almond oil. Almond spread version is generally more like a confection with lots of added sugar. It is also generally drier with a paste consistency.

Ingredients

  • 4 x 50g scoops of 180 protein supplement.
  • 1 tablespoons of carob powder
  • Small handful of diced prunes (You can really use anything you fancy. Dates, prunes, canberries etc.)
  • Approximately 1/2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1-2 dessert spoons of 100% almond butter
  • Takes 5 minutes to prepare
