Seawolves Cook: Chocolate Raspberry Protein Balls

The holiday season may be over but that doesn't mean you can't whip up a little treat for yourself every so often. These Chocolate Raspberry Protein Balls are perfect for after a workout or just as a snack:

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 2 servings (4 scoops) plant-based vanilla protein powder
  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup freeze-dried raspberries

What you need to do:

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the oats, cashews, protein powder, dates, cocoa powder, and salt in a food processor, and blend until everything is a smooth, floury consistency.
  • Add the banana, and blend until a thick, slightly sticky dough forms.
  • Roll out 25 balls, and place them on the parchment paper.
  • Pulse the freeze-dried raspberries in a Nutribullet or food processor.
  • Roll each ball in the raspberry powder, and return to the cookie sheet.
  • Store in the fridge in a sealed container for up to a week.
