Cherry Vanilla Chia Protein Balls Photo Yield: yields 10-12 balls


  • 10 pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup almonds (unsalted, plain, whole almonds)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 vanilla bean (scoop out the flesh)
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds


  1. Place the dates in a food processor and chop until broken in to small pieces. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until it forms a fine, crumbly mixture. If you can pinch the crumbs and they sticks between your fingers, you’re there.

  2. Measure 1 Tbsp. scoops and carefully form the balls with your hands.

  3. Optional Prep: A) Press into a cake pan to make bars. B) Drizzle melted dark chocolate over the tops.
