Ingredients
  • 14 tbsp flax meal (7 oz)
  • 14 tbsp pumpkin seeds (7 oz)
  • 14 tbsp sesame seeds (7 oz)
  • 14 tbsp of sunflower seeds (7 oz)
  • ⅔ cup coconut oil

  • 6 tbsp Primal Kitchen Vanilla Collagen Fuel
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • One bag of Lily’s Dark chocolate chips (9 oz bag)
Instructions
  1. This recipe will make 28 energy balls, 14 for the first half of your cycle with pumpkin and flax seed, and 14 for the second half of your cycle with sesame and sunflower seeds. The remaining ingredients are split evenly for each set.
  2. In a food processor, grind pumpkin and flax seed (or flax meal) until smooth. Add ⅓ coconut oil, ⅔ cups almond butter, ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp vanilla, and 3 tbsp protein collagen power and process until well mixed. Add half the bag of chocolate chips and pulse a few times until chocolate is evenly dispersed in your energy ball mix. Remove your mix from the processor, place in a container and place in the fridge for one hour to solidify. (This is your follicular phase recipe.)
  3. Repeat the above steps with the sunflower and sesame seeds.
  4. In a food processor, grind sesame and sunflower seeds until smooth. Add ⅓ coconut oil, ⅔ cups almond butter, ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp vanilla and 3 tbsp protein collagen power and process until well mixed. Add half the bag of chocolate chips and pulse a few times until chocolate is evenly dispersed in your energy ball mix. Remove your mix from the processor, place in a container and place in the fridge for one hour to solidify. (This is your luteal phase recipe.)
  5. Remove each bowl from the fridge and use your hands or a spoon to create 14 balls from each batch, so you have 28 total. Place in separate storage containers and label for each phase so you don't lose track!
  6. Your follicular phase snacks include flax and pumpkin - eat one per day on days 1-13.
  7. Your luteal phase snacks include sunflower and sesame - eat one per day on days 14-28.
