Add the freeze-dried strawberries to a zip-lock bag and tap them with a rolling pin to lightly crush them and get a mix of powder and pieces.
In a mixing bowl, add almond flour, finely crushed freeze-dried strawberries, and protein powder and stir to combine evenly.
Add in the liquid ingredients: maple syrup, nut butter, almond extract, and natural strawberry extract if used.
Stir until the dough comes together into a moist, soft dough that you can roll into balls. If too dry adding 1-2 tablespoons of almond milk. If too wet, add a bit more protein powder, 1 teaspoon at a time.
Grease your hands with oil - the dough is a bit sticky - roll into 12 balls and roll each bite into freeze-dried strawberry powder to coat.
Note 1: Oat flour might work, but the texture of the dough will be dryer, and you will need more almond milk.Note 2: Any nut butter works, but some are high in flavor and alter the strawberry flavor.Note 3: Any liquid sweetener like agave or coconut nectar works.Note 4: If you find a tasty strawberry plant-based protein powder, it will add an even deeper strawberry flavor.Note 5: You can skip or use vanilla extract.Note 6: Any dairy-free milk works.Storage: Store the protein balls in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze them in zip-lock bags for up to 1 month.
