This summer I’ve been seeking out protein balls/bites/bars wherever I go. This could be due to my incessant need to eat, or because they are fReAkInG delicious.
Either way, my recent obsession has prompted the careful creation of a rich, chocolate-y recipe that combines all my favourite protein ball ingredients in one.
This makes 10 bites:
You will need:
- 1/2 Cup Almond Meal ($AU9)*
- 1/2 Cup Hemp Flour ($AU6)
- Sprinkle of Salt
- 1/2 Cup Mother Earth Peanut Butter ($AU4)
- 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup ($AU5)
- 20g Cacao Nibs (AU$5)
- 70g Loving Earth Mylk Chocolate (AU$7)
*Costs are based on supermarket prices for a full packet of each ingredient.
To make: Combine all ingredients in a bowl, squish it into a square pan and chill in the fridge.
To serve, you can make cute little designs on the square bites (e.g. with almonds as above), or you can top them with desiccated coconut, or crumbled peanuts, or whatever floats your boat.
These little guys have around 10g of protein in them.. yet they taste like chocolate cookie dough. ENJOY!
