The best thing about making your own protein balls is they are completely customisable. I used shredded desiccated coconut, dates, soya protein powder, roasted cashews and walnuts. These are gluten free, vegan, grain free and can be made paleo by swapping the soya protein powder for collagen peptides or milled flax or chia seeds.

I chose to roast my nuts in the oven first as I find this helps to increase their flavour but you can always buy them roasted to start with or skip this step to make them a raw protein ball.

I was really surprise how great they turned out as I normally make protein balls with oats but you don’t miss them at all. They are the perfect combination of nutty and sweet and remind me of granola. My mixture made 15 small balls but you can make whatever sized works best for you.
