My beloved fat ball recipe is here. I first posted about them on instagram but they became so popular they needed their own post on my page. I hope you enjoy them! High in fat + protein and low in sugar, these balls are to die for. I always have some on hand!
1 cup coconut shreds
1/2 c. Coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds
2 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tsp cinnamon
3 medjool dates (pitted)
1/3 c. almond milk
Blend everything in a food processor until dough is achieved. Dough will be wet, that’s good!
Roll into bite sized balls then lay flat on a air-tight container and freeze. They last for months but they're so delicious I bet they won't.
Remove from freezer and let thaw 6 minutes before eating for optimal deliciousness!
SUGAR FREE: feel free to remove the dates completely for ultimate low sugar.
PROTEIN BOOST:feel free to also add vital proteins collagen peptides, or a scoop of your favorite protein powder.
FAT BALL COLORING: everybody's fat ball color will be different, due to a multitude of reasons. Coloring depends on things like which types of nuts you use (dry, raw, blanched, roasted), when you add the cacao nibs (add them the last 3 seconds of blending for a lighter colored ball), and how cold your freezer is. The coloring of the fat ball doesn't affect the taste or the nutritional content. If you want a lighter ball, you can add more coconut butter and less coconut oil.
