Almond Croissant Protein Balls

November 9, 2016

 

One of my favourite pastries in the whole world - almond croissants! 

 

Now i'm in offseason & have a few more calories in my life i've been enjoying the occasional almond croissant with my morning coffee. However, they're pretty hefty on the calorie front so I thought i'd create something a bit lighter that I can enjoy with my morning brew but still helps me get my fix. 

 

Unlike regular almond croissants these balls can be enjoyed by those who can't have gluten too! 

 

Servings: Makes 10 Balls 

Macros per ball: 

60kcal / 3.5g protein / 5g carbs / 2.5g fat 

 

Ingredients: 

30g protein powder of choice (I used a honey almond flavoured one from "I am dedicated" for these but vanilla will do)

30g almond butter

30g oats (regular or gluten free) 

30g honey 

20g flaked almonds 

1/2 tsp almond extract 

5 sprays Fry Light butter spray (to give the buttery croissant flavour) 

 

Instructions: 

1. Place all ingredients except for the flaked almonds into a blender & mix well (If mix looks a little dry add 1tsp water). 

2. Scoop mix out using a spoon & roll into balls. 

3. Roll each ball into the flaked almonds to coat. 

4. Eat! :-)
