Nut Free Protein Balls

Everyone always wants to make sure they get enough protein. Everyone’s talking about protein. Protein this, protein that. Where do you get your protein? How much protein do you eat? Should I have one protein shake or two? Protein, schmotein!

OK, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little. Maybe it’s just 90 per cent of the population that talk about protein, or maybe it’s only 50 percent, or even ten per cent, seriously, it’s probably not even 1 per cent. But there are people out there who count their protein intake. And I’m definitely not one of them.

I wouldn’t have a clue how much protein I take in. I don’t know how many carbs, or fat, or calories. What I do know is that when I eat wholesome food I feel amazing and when I eat crap food I feel crap.

Makes sense doesn’t it?

Eat crap, feel crap.

Eat awesome, feel awesome.

Nut free protein balls are chock-a-block full of nourishing seeds, cacao and coconut. They use only 8 ingredients and take less than 15 minutes to make.

So go ahead make these balls, these nut free protein balls, these protein wonder seed balls without nuts and feel awesome. Feel like superman and don’t feel guilty when that chocolate touches your taste buds. Oh, you won’t?  That’s just me? Damn.

Nut free protein balls are chock-a-block full of nourishing seeds, cacao and coconut. They use only 8 ingredients and take less than 15 minutes to make.

I often double the recipe as they keep in the fridge for up to two weeks in an air-tight container. Theoretically they can last two weeks, realistically much less.

Looking for hemp seeds? Try the health food shop. Australia is the only country in the world where it is illegal to sell hemp seeds as food. If you don’t want to use hemp seeds, replace them with either sunflower seeds or extra pepitas.

If you make these share a photo of them, I’d love to see. I’ve already seen the cutest photo of my friend’s little boy who doesn’t like to try much, but he loved these!
