Protein Pow | Almond Cookie Dough & Coffee Energy Balls

 

By Anna Sward of proteinpow.com

 

These energy balls are really easy to make and they’re absolutely delicious!

They taste like almond cookie dough with a subtle hint of coffee and they’re perfect to carry with you to work or school and have as a snack before you head to the gym.

I added some raisins to the dough for an extra shot of energy, but if you don’t like raisins, feel free to omit them – or substitute them for chocolate chips, flaked coconut, or chopped nuts! You can also coat the balls in melted dark chocolate and, in that way, turn them into more of a dessert!

 

Ingredients

 

Servings: 14 Energy Balls

 

– ½ cup of rolled oats

 

– ½ cup of vanilla, latte, or unflavoured whey protein

 

– ¼ cup of agave syrup (or honey)

 

– ¾ cup of ground almonds

 

– 2 tbsp freshly-brewed espresso

 

– 2 tbsp of raisins – or chocolate chips, or coconut flakes, or chopped nuts (optional)

 

 

Method

 

1) In a big bowl, mix all ingredients together until you get a dough that you can shape with your hands into balls. If the mix is too sticky, add a bit more ground almonds.

 

2) Make 10-14 balls out of the dough, depending on what size you want them

 

3) Add 2 tbsp of raisins/chocolate chips/coconut flakes or chopped up nuts and mix everything around with a spoon or spatula! This is optional but a great way to add an additional texture to the energy balls!
