Inspired by left over nut pulp from almond mylk
Prep Time :
15 mins + 20 mins rolling time
food processor and ready to roll hands
15 medium balls
Leftover nut pulp, could be half a cup or less. The more pulp the wetter the mix. 2 pitted medjool dates, handful raw cashews, handful hemp seeds, tablespoon sesame seeds, 1/2 cup hemp protein powder, 2 tablespoon rice malt or coconut syrup, pinch of salt
put all ingredients in order as listed here, except nut pulp, into the food processor with the blade at the bottom. Blend up for a good minute then slowly add the nut pulp and continue for another 30 seconds or until well blended.
Tip it out into a wide shallow bowl, so your hands have space to work without too much spillage. Make sure your hands are clean and all your rings are off. Take a palm full of the mix into the palm of your hand, and using both palms start rolling up your balls. Circular consistent movement. These are a lot easier and faster to bind than seed based balls.
Ready to eat when you are. They keep best for 3 days refrigerated in an air tight container, if you can wait that long. Great for snacks anytime.
Optional: Use pea or rice protein powder
