All Natural Protein Balls – NO BLEND, Gluten Free and Dairy Free

How great are bliss balls when you don’t have to get out the food processor for them? The last time I shared my recipes for No Blend Bliss Balls, they were a hit because they were so simple to whip up with minimal effort and cleaning up involved! Today’s little recipe is exactly the same. You really only need a bowl, a mixing spoon and a container to store the delicious little bites in.

I call these all natural protein balls, because I don’t actually use any protein powder in them. I’ve used a mix of wholefoods that are naturally high in protein, like LSA (ground linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds), sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds and peanut butter (I alternate between Mayver’s and Macro peanut butter – both are delicious and don’t contain any sugar or additives).

To sweeten it, I added just a couple of spoonfuls of organic honey. Bliss balls generally have a base of medjool dates which are delicious but quite high in natural sugar, so if you’re looking for something less sweet, these are a great alternative!

As well as being filled with protein, they’re also packed with good fats, making them a good source of long sustaining energy and they’ll keep you fuller for longer.

To make them, I simply threw all the ingredients together in a bowl, mixed it and scooped out spoonfuls and rolled them into bite sized balls and popped them in the freezer to store until needed.

They taste like peanut butter cookie dough and I seriously can’t get enough of them! Please remind me again why I don’t make these more often?
