Vegan Healthy Protein Balls

Vegan Healthy Protein Balls

Have you ever had a no sugar low carb protein bar? Well, they are usually like £2.50 a bar and only about 40g, which is pretty expensive. I was having a few of these vegan friendly protein bars on my January clean eating Dietbet challenge I thought I would try to create my version of a healthy vegan protein bar.

When you make bars like these at home you can add ingredients and flavours you like without spending a fortune, It was rather satisfying being able to make my own bars/balls.

I added some known superfoods to these bars such as chia seeds rich in Omega 3, flaxseed which also rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 which are great for vegetarians and vegans as it's a natural source of Omega oils which is usually found in fish.

My vegan protein healthy balls are completely sugar-free, the sweetness comes only from agave nectar and dried cranberries, which makes these little ball lower in carbs. I worked out the nutrition and they are 65 calories per ball with low carbs, high protein and moderate fat.
