Vanilla Protein Balls

I am definitely a fan of cooking things that are super quick and tasty and don’t require much effort at all. Like many, I am time poor but I still strive to eat as clean as possible.

These protein balls are tasty and filling and keep you going. This recipe makes 18 small balls 🙂

You will need:

  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • ½ cup cashews
  • 2 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp mesquite powder – optional
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence or 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 5 medjool dates – pitted
  • 1 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 2 tbsp filtered water


  1. Process nuts and seeds in a food processor until a loose crumb is formed.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and process until mixture sticks together.
  3. Roll into balls.
  4. Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
