These balls are seriously a treat, and they’re loaded up with healthy fats and protein! I like to keep a batch in my fridge for whenever I need a sweet bite, and I’ve been known to have a few as breakfast too, along with an extra scoop of collagen in my coffee! I was inspired by a recipe that nurturingbodyandmind posted on her Instagram a while back and I modify a little bit with each batch...they're very forgiving. The key ingredients here are the Nuttzo Chocolate Power Fuel and the Chocolate Fudge Nuzest, which really pack in the brownie batter flavor! A couple of my other favorite brands have made it in as well, including Nutpods and Guiltless Goodies!
Here’s the recipe; I hope you give them a try!
PS. Nuzest hooked me up with a special discount code for all of December: use wholedailylife25 for 25% off of any regular priced item instead of the usual 15%!!
Brownie Batter Protein Balls
-1/4 cup Guiltless Goodies Superseed Flour (alternatively, ground flax seeds)
-1/4 cup hemp hearts
-1/3 cup walnuts (or sub other nut of choice)
-2 scoops Nuzest Fudge Chocolate protein powder
-2-3 tbsp Nutpods (any flavor, I used original )
-1/2 cup Nuttzo Chocolate Power Fuel
Toss everything in a food processor and blend away! I like to blend up the seed flour, hemp hearts, and nuts first, then add the Nuzest, followed by the Nutpods and Nuttzo, but it really all ends up the same. If the mixture feels a little too dry, add more Nutpods 1 tbsp at a time until you get a soft consistency! I use a 1oz cookie scoop to form the balls. Dust them with some cocoa powder if you're feeling fancy! You'll want to store these in the fridge, if they last past a day.
