[Makes 8-12 bars or balls]
- 6 Tablespoons sunbutter
- 4 Tablespoons cacao (or unsweetened cocoa)
- 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 Tablespoon ground flax seeds, chia seeds, or raw almond meal
- 1 scoop plant-based protein powder
- 15 drops of liquid stevia OR 1 Tablespoon honey (to taste)
- Pinch of sea salt
- Water (as needed)
- 1 Tablespoon raw cacao, shredded coconut, or crushed almonds (for rolling)
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl (except the 1 Tablespoon of raw cacao or shredded coconut). Stir and slowly add water until you get the desired consistency of your protein ball (you want the dough a thick rollable texture, go easy with the water). Mold the dough into little balls. Roll in nuts or coconut, or dust with raw cacao. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and freeze or fridge for 10-15 minutes. Eat, or store in a sealed container for later use.
