Beet Choc Bliss Balls

Looking for a quick and easy snack to whip up? These Beet Choc Bliss balls by nourishedby_you are a healthy little treat that can be made in just 15 minutes. This recipe includes beetroot powder which contains a high amount of nitrates which are converted to nitric acid in the body (an important vasodilator).
INGREDIENTS
  • 3 tsp of beetroot powder
  • 5 medjool dates, pitted 
  • 2 scoops or 60g vanilla protein powder (whey or plant based)
  • 1/2 cup of nut butter (almond or cashew)
  • 2 1/2 tbsp of water 
  • 1/2 cup of rolled oats 
  • 1/4 cup of cacao nibs
WHAT TO DO
  1. In a processor blitz the beetroot powder, dates, protein powder, nut butter and water until well combined. 
  2. Pulse in oats and cacao nibs. The mixture should have enough moisture for it to come together. It should NOT crumble or break or neither be too wet and/or sticky. When in doubt if you find your mix is a bit dry add a teaspoon of water if you find your mixture is too dry.
  3. Roll into 12-13 balls (mine weighed about 33-35g each).

Storage Suggestion:
Store in the fridge in a air tight container and take out when you need a healthy sweet treat! 

 

Notes & Modifications:
To make Vegan: use a plant-based protein powder.
