Protein Mix

  • 10 organic dried figs (diced, hard stalk removed)
  • Organic dried dates
  • ½ cup of brazil nuts
  • ½ Pepitas (sunflower seeds)
  • ½ cup of macadamias
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup cocoa or carob powder
  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • 4 – 5 cocao beans


  • 1 cup LSA powder (linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds)
  • ½ cup fresh organic raspberries


  1. Add all the protein mix ingredients except for the Carob Powder to a blender and blend on high.
  2. Add the carob powder separately a bit at a time until the mix takes on a doughy consistency.
  3. Remove mixture from the blender. Take a small handful of the protein mix (about half a golf ball size) and make a boat shape with your hands.
  4. Insert a raspberry into the centre and then generously cover with more protein mixture to create the other half.
  5. Roll it the mixture in your hands to form a ball to roughly a golf ball size.
  6. Roll the balls into a coating of LSA powder to cover and they’re ready to enjoy.
