Protein balls Method

  1. Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. It should resemble a somewhat sticky dough that holds together when lightly squeezed.
  2. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes to set (this will make the balls easier to roll later on).
  3. Remove the bowl from the refrigerator and, using wet hands, portion the dough into balls of the desired size.
  4. Roll the balls in ground pistachios to coat. Place on a tray. Refrigerate for 1 hour, or until firm.
