ingredients

  • 1 cup brazil nuts
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup hemp protein powder (or plain protein powder of choice)
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup carob powder
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • zest of 1 & 1/2 medium sized oranges
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

method

Place the brazil nuts in a blender or food processor and blend to a rough meal. Now add in the almond meal, hemp protein powder, carob powder and hemp seeds and blend till just combined. The idea is to not break the hemp seeds down too much.

Now add the almond butter, orange juice and orange zest. Blend till well combined and the dough forms a rough ball or at least clumps together in the machine really well. If your dough seems too crumbly just add a touch of water and blend again.

Once your dough has come together nicely, roll into balls around the size of a twenty-cent piece in diameter. Roll in more carob powder if desired. 

Store in the fridge and eat within 4 days, otherwise best to freeze them and pull them out as you are ready to eat.
