Protein Balls Recipe

paleo protein balls

By Guy Lawrence

Guy: I don’t think any words can describe how seriously tasty these protein balls recipe are! Think of all your good fats, natural proteins and unprocessed carbs rolled into one, that you just keep wanting more of… I’m sure you get the idea! Big thanks to Keira for the recipe. Word of warning though, only take what you want to eat for your 3pm fix, as you will scoff the lot otherwise! Over to Kiera…

Keira: I must admit, I am guilty for the 3pm afternoon sugar cravings. Thanks to my trainer, I normally forgo these cravings and go on a hunt for a protein smoothie of some sort. However, wanting a cheaper and easier option, I decided to give these little balls a go, and oh how this was a good idea!

These raw, protein packed, antioxidants rich 100% high protein vegan balls, are perfect for that little craving, without the complete and utter guilt that comes after consumption.


  • 13 dates
  • 1 ½ cup of raw almonds
  • 3 x 50g scoops of 180 Vegan protein SuperFood (or WPI)
  • 1 1/12 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut butter
  • 1-2 tablespoon water
  • 10 goji berries (soaked)
  • Handful of chia seeds
  • Handful of organic coconut flakes (ground)
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


1. Pop the almonds, cacao, cinnamon, chia seeds and protein powder in a food processor, blitz until a crumbly texture occurs.

2. Combine the dates, blitz. Gradually add the coconut butter, water and goji berries until the mixture comes together.

3. Once all together, pop in fridge for 10 minutes.

4. After 10 minutes, roll a small bite size piece into a ball, and then roll in your choice of covering, I have covered these in ground coconut flakes.

Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. The perfect high protein vegan amazeball!

Improve your diet with flaxseed

Many adults, especially baby boomers, have been brainwashed into thinking fats equal calories and should be avoided. But the body needs fat to function. (After all, 60 percent of the brain is fat.) Not all fat is alike, and not all fat calories — researchers increasingly believe — are alike either. “Some fats seem to bind with receptors in the nucleus of the cell and cause the body to metabolize them better,” Reardon says.

Healthy fats include many nuts, seeds, avocado, extra-virgin olive oil, and canola oil. “Eating nuts and avocados doesn’t make you fat — but not eating them might,” Reardon says. Unlike calories from saturated (bad) fats, healthy fat calories are essential to the body’s metabolism. They keep you performing well, and they satisfy hunger better.

How? Use extra-virgin olive oil and canola for much of your cooking. Don’t be shy about adding a small amount of olive oil, with flavored vinegar, to a salad if it makes it taste better, so you want to eat more salad. (Bonus: Less sodium and sugar than processed bottled dressings.) Mash avocado and spread it on your sandwich in place of mayonnaise. Snack on raw almonds, pumpkin seeds, pistachios, and walnuts — four kinds of nuts and seeds with great lipid-lowering ability — or add them as toppings or ingredients to cereal, vegetable dishes, or foods.

Include Flaxseed

Flax is a rich source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as antioxidants and fiber, and it’s been shown to reduce “bad” LDL cholesterol. Because whole flaxseed tends to be less well used by the body, grinding the seeds before use provides more benefit.
