First of all I have to apologise, this particular recipe is something I've adapted recently as I am looking for fuel for the Melbourne Marathon on October 13 & the Shepparton 70.3 Ironman on November 17. With that in mind, these chewy chocolate balls are FREAKIN tasty & healthy!
Choc Protein Balls
Prep: 12-15 minutes.
Cooking time: N/A
Quantity: Should make approximately 15 medium to large balls.
3 scoops protein powder (chocolate or vanilla flavour)
1.5 scoops raw cacao
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup almonds, blended or crushed to chunky consistency.
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla escence
1/2 cup shredded dry coconut flakes
1/2 cup water
The how to.....
It's so simple, just mix everything really well in a large bowl until you have a consistent mix. Adjust water level to ensure your mix is quite thick to allow you to then mould into balls.
Take a bowl, put some more shredded dry coconut flakes in it and coat the outside of the balls.
Finish by putting the balls in the freezer for 25-30 minutes before transferring to the fridge.
Delicious - check.
