If you’re looking for a quick and easy hit of protein in the morning, these keto almond breakfast balls are for you! Packed with lots of goodness, they are the perfect way to start your day.
These breakfast balls contain only a few key ingredients and can be made quickly and in advance, so you’ve always got a go-to breakfast snack. The base of the balls is pea protein, which has been shown to provide people on the keto diet with a great source of protein and iron. The balls are kept together with a mix of coconut oil and almond butter that are both high in healthy fats and a great alternative to traditional dairy products.
To make the balls sweet and tasty without the need for refined sugars, you add a small amount of cinnamon, vanilla extract, and shredded coconut before rolling them into small balls. If you’d prefer, you can always turn this recipe into snack bars instead of balls to give yourself a larger hit of energy.
These delicious balls are perfect for a light breakfast, post-workout snack, or can be enjoyed during the afternoon to get you through to dinner. Make a batch today and see what all the fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed!
