Steps:

  1. Add the dark chocolate, cocoa powder, protein powder, sunflower seed butter, and half the pistachios to a food processor and blend until well mixed and sticky. Add more sunflower seed butter if the mixture is too dry, or more pistachios if too wet.

  3. Crush the remaining pistachios and coat each ball evenly. Store in the fridge or freezer until ready to enjoy.
