I’ve mentioned many times on this blog, that I am all about a balanced lifestyle. Balance in life is quite key, too much of any thing, too little of another can have drastic consequences. However, when we find the perfect equilibrium, it makes for the best balanced lifestyle… like, you know, the best of both worlds.

Botanica Health

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Botanica Health is a provider of the highest quality natural health products, and understands the desire of many to achieve our best health through a natural, mindful approach to wellness. From my own personal experience, this is the best approach. They make three promises:

Whole Plant Ingredients – always whole herbs and ingredients, never isolates or synthetics. And they don’t add any fillers, artificial flavours, preservatives or colours – HALLELUJAH!

Rigorous Craft Process – from where our ingredients are sourced, how they are grown and how they are made – all to ensure the best absorption, the best bioavailability, the highest concentration and the greatest purity and potency.

Herbal Traditions – the use of herbs and superfoods that have seen centuries of traditional use, perfected over time

Recipe Tips, Notes, and Some Facts

Botanica Vanilla Perfect Protein is a sprouted plant protein blend packed with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, healthy fats and fibre. It has a light vanilla taste, and is quite easy to absorb and digest – also available in chocolate.

Botanica Coconut Oil – picked fresh and cold pressed to give the best possible flavour and nutritional profile. Here are some other amazing features:

  • Sealed Glass Jar
  • 100% Virgin
  • Cold-First Pressed
  • Certified Organic
  • Fair Trade Certified and Sourced on Monkey Friendly Farms
  • Light/Faint Coconut Aroma

How to Make No-Bake Vanilla Protein Balls

  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
  2. Roll into two-bite sized balls
  3. Chill in refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until balls have firmed up
  4. Enjoy immediately, or store in an air-tight container for up to a week, or freeze for up to 2-3 months.

A few Extra Notes – if you have difficulty making the balls stick together, I recommend adding more peanut butter – this acts as the glue. Also, don’t forget that once chilled, all the ingredients will firm up. As a last resort, you can press the ingredients in to square or rectangular dish, and make Flat No Bake Vanilla Protein Bars.

  • ½ cup Raisins or Chocolate Chips

Instructions

1

In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

2

Add in wet ingredients, and mix thoroughly together creating your base.

3

Next, add your chocolate chips, mix well.

Using your hands, roll dough into "two-bite" sized balls. Place in air-tight container, and repeat until finished.

Notes

As another option, you can press the ingredients into square or rectangular dish, and make flat No Bake Vanilla Protein Bars. I also test this recipe, but do a layered version - protein oat mixture, layer or peanut butter, or hazelnut chocolate, topped with a final layer of protein oat mixture. Allow to chill in refrigerator, slice and serve.
