POST WORKOUT RAW PROTEIN BALLS # 1 RAW PROTEIN BALLS [Makes 4] These are great for post-workout & eating on the go. This is our healthy version of a “Think Thin ” bar – without the junk.

2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder** (Sun Warrior, hemp, or whey, if you tolerate it) 2 tablespoons hemp seeds 2 tablespoons coconut butter or coconut oil 5 drops vanilla stevia 1/2 tablespoon water 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Dust with shredded coconut or raw cacao


Put all ingredients in a mini chopper/processor and pulse a few times to incorporate. Give the dough a stir and start to roll the mixture into 1 tablespoon-sized balls with your hands. **If the dough is too crumbly, add a few drops of water. Then add the shredded coconut & dust with raw cacao (optional). Eat right away or store in an airtight container at room temperature. # 2 PROTEIN BALLS


1/2 cup sunflower seed butter 2 tablespoons raw honey or stevia 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs 2 tablespoons shredded coconut 3/4 cup natural, unsweetened (Sun Warrior, hemp, or whey, if you tolerate it) 1 teaspoon organic, alcohol-free vanilla 2 tablespoons hemp seeds


Mix sunflower seed butter, protein powder, honey, and vanilla until smooth. Then add remainder of ingredients. Form into 1-inch balls and place in an airtight container. Store in the fridge. # 3 RAW COOKIE DOUGH BABY WITH GRAINS (QUINOA)


2/3 cup raw almonds 2/3 cup raw walnuts or pumpkin seeds 2/3 cup dry, uncooked quinoa (grind quinoa in blender or Bob’s Red Mill Brand) 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 cup agave nectar 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 3 tablespoons cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips



In a food processor, process the almonds, walnuts, oats, cinnamon, and salt to a fine meal. Add the agave nectar and vanilla and process to combine. Next, add the cocoa nibs (or chocolate chips) and pulse just until combined. Roll the cookie dough into balls about 1 tablespoon each, wetting your hands if the dough is too sticky, and place them on a cookie pan lined with parchment paper.

Place the pan in the freezer for about an hour to firm up. Store balls in a tightly covered container in the freezer.


ENJOY!
