Protein Packed Chia Balls with Cacao

Posted by Overstock Drugstore on 18th Aug 2015

A super healthy treat made with cacao, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds and almonds; with maple syrup added for a touch of sweetness. This treat is high in protein, essential fats & antioxidants.


♥ 2 teaspoons hemp protein

♥ 2 tablespoons ground flax seed

♥ 1 teaspoon chia seeds

♥ 5 tablespoons ground almonds

♥ 2 tablespoons cacao powder

♥ 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or alternative)

♥ ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

♥ Extra ground almond for rolling (optional)


♥Grind almond and flax seeds with a nut mill or high powdered food processor (or alternatively if you don't have a grinder  you can purchase pre-ground versions).

♥Add all ingredients into a small mixing bowl and then mix together thoroughly using the back of a spoon and a downward pressing motion. Keep pressing and mixing until everything is moist and evenly combined. This may take a minute or two, so do stay with it.

♥Divide into seven teaspoon sized parts and roll into balls (either with or without the extra ground almonds to roll in as preferred).

♥Pop in the fridge or enjoy immediately any time of the day.
