Let’s face it: when the holidays arrive, your usual healthy pre-workout snack is at risk of being replaced by candy canes, chocolate and pieces of gingerbread- and we don’t blame you. But to keep your health goals prioritized amongst the usual outpouring of seasonal treats, we’ve got a recipe for you that beats any kind of truffle or piece of shortbread.
These mint chocolate energy balls can be used as a pre or post workout snack. The dates and coconut in this recipe will energize you before a workout or replenish your glycogen stores afterwards, and provide you with potassium and magnesium, two important electrolytes that are depleted from working out. The coconut oil also adds MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides) to this recipe, which are a natural source of quick energy. To stay consistent with holiday traditions, we’ve added chocolate protein powder and peppermint extract, so you can get your gains without feeling deprived of the holiday sweets.
