Vanilla & Cocao Protein Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops of vegan vanilla protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon cocao powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or hazelnut butter)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chai seeds
  • 1 tablespoon flaked coconut

Method

In a bowl mix the protein powder, cocao powder and almond butter together.

protein ball mixMelt the coconut oil slightly in the microwave (about 10-20 seconds) and pour into the mix and stir. The mix should turn soft, if it’s still too dry add in more coconut oil until you get a smooth texture.

Pop the mix in the fridge for 5 minutes, and the coconut oil will solidify enough for you to roll into balls.

Sprinkle the chai seeds and coconut flakes out ready to coat the balls.

As you roll the mix into balls, the coconut oil will melt the balls slightly, but that’s ok, the balls will harden up again at room temperature.

Coat the balls with the flake mix, and pop them on parchment paper ready to cool and set in the fridge.

Store in an airtight container and ENJOY!!
