Delicious, Quick & Easy Raw Choc-Nut Protein Balls.


With Christmas just around the corner it's time to stockpile your favourite healthy treats. Loading up on delicious, but healthy, treats helps you to enjoy the festivities and feasting without feeling bloated, tired or compromising your weight loss goals.

Here's one of my favourite recipes. These protein balls are fun, and quite messy, to make so are a great recipe to get your kids involved with making.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 scoops of your favourite protein powder (I used Raw protein vanila flavour for these)

  • 3-4 tablespoons of raw cacao

  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons of LSA, flaxseed or almond meal

  • 1 large can of coconut cream

  • 2 tablespoons nut butter

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • Optional: Coconut flakes

Directions

  • Mix 2 Tbsp Cacao, Chia seeds, nut butter,1 tbsp LSA/flaxseed/almondmeal and coconut cream in a bowl until all are blended well.

  • Place in refridgerator to set for 1hour. Now take the other tablespoon of LSA and place in a bowl. Mix 1 tablespoon of raw cacao through the mix until dispersed well.

  • Cover your hands with a light dusting of raw cacao. Take 1 tsp choc-chia mix and place in the bowl with the LSA/cacao mix. Roll into a ball shape and then place on a plate.

  • Keep dusting your hands with raw cacao and LSA to reduce the wastage from sticky mix.

  • Once all bowls are rolled you can now make final touches. Dust with more raw cacao/roll through coconut sugar/coconut flakes or even roll through raw cacao nibs.

  • Place back in the fridge to set.

At this stage they will be edible (and delicious) but they might be a little soft. The longer you leave them in the fridge the harder they will get. These guys are a great snack, dessert or even quick breakfast. You can add your own twist by rolling the balls around a raw macadamia centre or dollop of nut butter or even place a berry in the middle.

I hope you enjoy this delicious treat. Don't forget to share your experience.

Until next time, stay deliciously healthy.
