Easter with Arctic Power Berries 


So Easter is less than two weeks away now so I thought I’d create a special Easter recipe for you!

Since I’m in competition prep at the moment, hot cross buns are off the menu for me (sad face) however protein energy balls are not! I decided to combine the two and create an Orange and Cranberry Hot Cross Bun flavoured energy ball.

I’m happy to say I think I nailed it! Here it is!


Hot Cross Balls


  • 500g Date Paste
  • 70g Unflavoured Soy Protein
  • 1 heaped tbsp Raw Cacao Powder
  • 15g Arctic Power Berries Cranberry Powder
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 0.5 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Juice of one orange
  • Icing to decorate


  • Heat date paste for 30 seconds in the microwave to loosen
  • Mix in the protein powder, cacao, 10g Arctic Power Berries, cinnamon and cloves
  • Add in the juice of one large orange
  • Mix until combined and then separate and roll between your palms to form 24 balls
  • Roll the balls in the remaining Cranberry Powder and Ice crosses on the top

Ta Dah!

Now for the Nutritional Content Per Ball:

Cal: 79.5

Protein: 3.35g

Carbs: 18.4g

Fat: 1.1g

Not too shabby, a healthier Easter treat for those of us who can’t indulge in hot buttery hot cross buns and Easter eggs!
