The holidays are over, maybe you are just getting back to workout out. I am here to tell you that you can have your “cookies” and eat them too!! These Gingerbread Protein Balls are a great fitness snack, a delicious treat, which means you can have your treats while not feeling guilty!
Gingerbread Protein Balls
1 c raw almond meal
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (used Vega Protein Smoothie Vanilla, Vega One French Vanilla and Vega Sport Protein Vanilla will also work)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cloves
1 TBSP chia seeds
1 tsp finely grated fresh ginger root
1 TBSP agave or pure maple syrup, or honey for non vegan
1 TBSP molasses
1 TBSP almond milk
Pulse dry ingredients together in a food processor. Add wet ingredients and process until dough comes together. Roll mixture into 12 balls, or desired size. Store in the refrigerator or freezer and pull out as needed. If eating right away they will be soft, I would place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before eating. Enjoy!!
As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
