Add a power boost to that pesky midday slump with these protein-packed quinoa balls loaded with the irresistible tropical flavors of coconut and pineapple.
Prepare quinoa according to package directions. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Pulse together dates, cashews, protein powder, coconut oil and honey in a food processor, until well blended. Add quinoa, shredded coconut and pineapple; pulse until well combined.
Roll mixture into sixteen 1-inch balls. Refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until set.
Roll each ball in shredded coconut or finely chopped cashews to add more texture and flavor.
