Protein power balls

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and provides a delightful warmth to these fibre-rich date balls.
  • Prep time:
    15 minutes
  • Serves:
    Makes 30 balls


Soak the dates in hot water for several minutes until softened, then drain them – saving the water – and place in a food processor.

Add the other ingredients to the food processor with the dates and blend until the mixture turns into a dough-like consistency. Add a tablespoon of the reserved date water if the mixture is too dry.

With a small spoon, scoop the mixture and make into 30 balls.

Roll the balls in shredded coconut and place on a tray until set and ready to eat. You can keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.

140g rolled oats
