Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Protein Balls
We've teamed up with the Culinary Witch to provide you these yummy, energy-providing vegan snacks. Our plant-based protein powder is combined with her love of plant-based nutrition to make lemon poppy seed protein balls. These decadent vegan protein balls are the perfect pick-me-up plant-based late afternoon snack.
- 1 cup dried apricots
- 1 cup raw cashews
- 1 tablespoon cacao
- 1 serving SANO vanilla plant-based protein powder
- 1/2 tablespoon poppy seeds
Soak the cashews in water for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain the water and use only the cashews for the recipe.
Add all the other ingredients into a food processor (reserve some protein powder + poppy seeds to roll the energy balls in) and blend until smooth.
Place a small bowl of water next to your work station and keep your hands slightly wet when forming the mixture into small balls to prevent it from sticking to your fingers.
Place a couple of spoons of plant-based protein powder and a sprinkle of poppy seeds onto a plate and mix together.
Roll the protein balls through the powder to coat them and prevent sticking.
These are great for breakfast, midday snack, post/pre-workout, or as a dessert!
