German Chocolate Cake Protein Balls

Ingredients:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • 2 Cups of Pecans
  • 1 Cup of Pitted Dates
  • 3 Scoops of Protein Powder ( I used Whey Gourmet Naturelle Chocolate  Ice Cream)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
  • 1/2  Cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • ¼ Cup Ground Flax
  • ¼ Cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
Directions:
  1. Add your two cups of pecans to your food processor and blend until it is flour.
  2. Add your 3 scoops protein powder and pulse until blended.
  3. Add your unsweetened coconut, cocoa and ground flax and pulse until blended.
  4. Add the syrup dates, and water. Blend until dough texture.
  5. Remove the dough from the food processor and place in a bowl. (If it is sticky you can refrigerate overnight). Begin rolling protein balls into 1 inch balls.
  6. Roll protein balls in coconut until completely covered (I prefer to toast the coconut)
  7. Place balls on a plate or in a container, cover and place in the fridge.
My recipe made 24 balls.

Can roll in flax meal, flax seed,  cocoa, coconut, ground nuts...almost anything! 

Nutrition info TBD.
