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.
