Balance Easter Protein Balls

Check out these nutritious protein balls with a touch of Hot-Cross-Bunny-ness. If you want less sugar, just replace the dried fruit with nuts or low-sugar chocolate bits. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup almond meal/ground almonds
  • 1 cup coconut, dessicated
  • 2 serves Balance 100% Whey Protein (Vanilla)
  • 1 tbsp LSA (ground linseed, sunflower, almond)
  • 1/2 tsp of each: cinnamon and mixed spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 4 tbsp mixed dried fruit
  • 1 orange, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp tahini


For the crosses:

  • 1/2 serve Balance 100% Whey Protein (Vanilla) mixed with a little liquid coconut oil (or you can use melted white chocolate)


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and whizz until well combined. The mixture should easily stick together without being too wet.
  2. Shape into 14 balls and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. To make the crosses: In a small bowl place the protein powder and gradually add coconut oil, mixing to combine. Consistency should be pour- able but not too runny! Alternatively, melt some white chocolate in a bowl over pot of boiling water and use this to create the crosses.
  4. Remove balls from the fridge and with a teaspoon carefully pour crosses over each ball.
  5. Return balls to refrigerator so that the crosses can set.
  6. Store balls in an air tight container in the fridge.
