You don't always need ready-made protein balls or protein bars! With simple ingredients and uncomplicated preparation, you can make homemade walnut-cocoa protein balls super quickly. The balls can of course be varied according to taste. But that's not the only advantage of these protein snacks. Once made, you have a great supply that you can use for several days. Whether as a post-workout snack or simply for a sweet tooth in between, these balls always work!
Ingredients (for approx. 15 pieces):
To start, mix the dates, walnut flour, cocoa, almond paste, cinnamon and salt in a food processor or a powerful blender until you have a sticky mixture. Then knead in the chopped walnuts and shape into about 15 balls. Roll them in the cocoa-cinnamon mixture and store them in an airtight container. The protein balls are ready!
