Protein balls are actually a staple in my diet! They’re super easy to make, are healthy and really satisfy a sweet tooth.


  • 12 fresh dates
  • 1 cup almonds (or nut of choice)
  • 1 scoop of protein
  • A few tablespoons of water
  • Coconut, to roll in

Optional add ins:

  • Nut butter
  • Cacao powder
  • Dried fruit, etc


  1. Blend up nuts in food processor.
  2. Add dates and blend well.
  3. Add protein (and any optional add ins) and blend again.
  4. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time until it just starts to stick together.
  5. Roll into 20 balls and then roll in coconut.
