Protein-Packed Power Balls

I wanted to come up with a snack that I could grab that was high-fat, high-protein and would give me a kick in the pants (energy-wise). These did the trick! As far as I know, these are Whole30 compliant, but I suppose if you were using them to satisfy some craving, they wouldn’t be. Please note: these are not a sweet treat. They are delicious, but functional, especially for after a workout!

Recipe: Protein-Packed Power Balls

1 cup unsweetened almond butter

1/3 cup coconut cream concentrate, melted

3/4 to 1 cup raisins

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth, then scoop onto parchment paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Pop one in your mouth for a great protein snack! Store in fridge for best results.

    Do you think you could use Dates instead? I don’t have any raisins . . . Are they mostly for the sweetener? Or do they serve any other purpose?

    My box of coconut cream says to mix it with warm water. Is that the “melting” portion of your recipe or do I not want to add water to it?

    Thanks!
