Chocolate-Almond Butter Balls
1/3 cup almond butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbs. Perfect Fit Protein Powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbs. coconut oil
1 cup hemp seeds
1/2 cup cacao powder
Slowly heat the coconut oil in a double broiler or metal bowl on top of a hot pot of water. It’s 76F in my house and my coconut oil has been in liquid form all summer long, so I got to skip this step. Woohoo for no AC. In a large bowl, mix together the butter, honey, salt, Perfect Fit and cinnamon. Add melted oil and stir to incorporate thoroughly. Mix in hemp seeds until well blended. Place mixture in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. Roll into 1 inch balls. Then roll in cacao powder. I used cocoa powder which is essentially the same thing. Enjoy!
I weighed out my almond butter using a scale. Hemp seeds are a great vegan option for adding protein into your meals. A 3 Tbs. serving has 10 g of protein.
The recipe makes 16 servings, but since my balls were a little smaller, my batch made 21. A single serving is 2-3 balls and ideally consumed for meals 3 or 4 on the Tone It Up diet plan.
