There is a lot of excitement over protein balls packed full of goodness and we have a very delicious, no bake, protein ball recipe to share with you.  Our protein balls are vegan, gluten free and a little crunchy.  Make them and roll them in unsweetened shredded coconut, coconut palm sugar, sesame seeds, chia seeds, or anything else that happens to come to your mind.  So easy and quick to grab on the run and pop in your mouth!

There are so many times when we just need a little extra boost during the day and we believe our protein balls will provide that extra boost.  If milled finely, you don’t need to go through the long process of extracting pea protein. Our Green Pea Protein Balls have fresh milled green split pea flour in them that provide a high source of protein, fiber, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.  A great source of pea protein, but you only need a little bit!  

We have added chia seed to our pea protein balls because it is nutrient dense and packs a punch of energy boosting power. Not only that, but recent research has found that the chia seed benefits are even greater than was previously realized. The reason Chia seeds are so beneficial is due to them being rich in fiber, omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals, just to mention a few.

We have also added sesame seeds because of their many health benefits of including vitamins, minerals, natural oils, and organic compounds which consist of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, manganese, copper, zinc, fiber, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, protein, and tryptophan.

According to many publications eating green split peas may improve your heart health as well as help you maintain a healthy blood pressure.  These are a few of the reasons we are milling our green split peas. We believe our split green pea flour has amazing protein benefits as well.

We think the combination of ingredients in our protein balls is quite outstanding, to say the least.  Just look at all the health benefits you can get in a small bite or two; maybe we should call these power balls!

Dried peas have been eaten for over 5,000 years and were a staple during the Middle Ages. Our recipe for protein balls will show you a very easy way to get some pea protein into your diet.  Remember that boost of daily power we shared about earlier.  The other boost is to your pocketbook because this is probably one of the most economical protein balls you can make!  Give our recipe a try and let us know what you think.
