Protein chia orbs

Protein chia orbs

Chia orbs are the perfect on the go snack for anyone looking for a sustainable energy boost. Loaded with protein, fiber and good fats, these orbs offer a delicious dose of balanced nutrition to power you up and keep your energy levels going strong. My boys love these as snacks and request a new batch whenever we run out. They are a constant item on my weekly menu planner. The bellow recipe makes a large batch (4-6 people) you may want to half it.

You will need:

  • 1 cup chia seeds
  • 4 tablespoons nut butter of your choice (cashew or sesame)
  • 12 tablespoons almond butter
  • 6 tablespoons vegan protein powder
  • 6 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • shredded coconut for rolling

Simply mix all your ingredients together, use a wooden spoon as the mixture is very thick and will take a bit of work to blend well. Roll into tablespoon size balls and roll in shredded coconut to perfection. Place in a glass container and store in the refrigerator.
