Red Maca chocolate Protein Balls

These Simple Red Maca Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls make the perfect snack They're packed with protein and taste similar to  (No Bake) Preacher cookies!


These are really easy to make and you can really change up the recipe however you like. i used ground pecans, oats, peanut coconut butter, hemp hearts, shredded coconut, cocoa, red maca and raw honey. Mix all your ingredients together in a large bowl.   


This Red Maca powder by The Organique Co. is considered an Incan superfood. The Maca root is native to Peru and sometimes called Peruvian Ginseng. It's super nutritious and is a great source of several important vitamins and minerals. Red Maca root  is thought to help with energy, balance mood, alleviate menopausal symptoms and more. Maca root has a nice nutty flavor with a hint of butterscotch and work great in these protein balls. 


Chill for about 30 min. in fridge, then coat your hands with a little coconut oil and roll into balls about the size of a large gumball.  You can then roll each ball in a little cocoa powder and red maca.




Chocolate Protein Balls Ingredients: -

1/2 cup nut butter (i used coconut peanut butter.)
1 cup whole oats
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2- 3/4 cup almonds, pecans, other nuts or seeds. (ground or chopped small)
1/3 cup raw honey
2 Tbsp hemp hearts, flax seeds or chia seeds etc
1 Tbsp Red Maca Powder
coconut oil (for coating fingers.)

Mix ingredients together really well in a large bowl. i coated my hands in coconut oil, and kneaded/mixed them by hand. Then let them chill for about 30 min in the fridge. Now, coat your hands again in coconut oil and roll them into little balls (large gumball size).  Roll in a little maca  and cocoa  powder. Store them in the fridge in an airtight container.
