I was busy in the kitchen yesterday experimenting with energy balls. Those of you who have read my previous blog posts will see I have a bit of an obsession with making energy balls.I have tried a few different types composed of different ingredients but yesterday I tried adding chia seeds into the mix.
Having just bought a large 1kg bag of chia seeds and recently bought a pouch of my fav whey protein – Chocolate peanut butter from My protein – I decided to include these! These are the larger ones pictured on the right. I have posted the almond balls on the left in a post before, so these are the same but with an added teaspoon of chia seeds.
Ingredients (for 6 servings):
80g pitted dates chopped
1 tspn sunflower oil
1 tspn chia seeds
1 scoop whey protein
Simply blend up the oats, add the rest of the ingredients then form into balls with your hands.
