These soft and delicious Thermomix Spiced Chai Protein Balls taste just like cookie dough. Made with nourishing ingredients, they make the perfect post-workout snack or after-school treat.
Whenever I make a batch of these protein balls, they're guaranteed to disappear within a day! They contain finely ground oats, almonds, Medjool dates, almond butter, coconut oil and chai spice powder.
Chai spice is a natural blend of ground cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves. I make my own mix, as the packets you find in the supermarket are laden with sugar. It's also convenient to have some on hand to make a chai latte.
