As someone with an above average sweet tooth I still catch myself craving cookies or little treats, especially in the evenings. I’m so used to having dessert every night (and multiple cookies or baked goods throughout the day) that my transition to a healthier lifestyle has had it’s tough moments!
Since cutting out refined sugar and really limiting my gluten intake, it can be hard to satisfy the craving for baked goods. But one of my favourite snacks which actually was so easy to find especially when I was travelling was those little “bliss balls” or protein balls. These are so simple to make and you can really adapt them to meet your own needs or restrictions! Regardless of what you add in, they are the perfect substitute for sugary treats that will still satisfy your sweet-tooth!
Here is my favourite version of the recipe at the moment.
Sugar-free Protein Bliss Balls ☺️💚
- 1 cup oats
- 1/3 cup Iron Vegan Sprouted Protein Powder (chocolate flavour)
- 1/8 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp hemp hearts
- 2 tbsp flax seeds
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut (optional!)
- 1/8 cup agave syrup (can sub for maple syrup, honey or blended dates!)
- 1/3 almond milk (or milk of your choice)
*if you add shredded coconut you might need a bit more almond milk to get them to stick!
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in the wet ingredients and until it becomes a sticky consistent. Form into little balls or make into a protein bar by flattening it into a pan! Keep sealed in the fridge so they last longer and enjoy whenever you need a sweet snack! 😻
Makes 8-10 balls.
