Choco­late and co­conut pro­tein balls

Irish Examiner - Weekend - - Food -

I al­ways have a batch of these pro­tein balls on the go. They’re easy to make and a per­fect post-train­ing snack or healthy ad­di­tion to a cup of tea. They’ll keep in an air­tight con­tainer in the fridge for up to a week.

Prep time: 5-10 min­utes

Cook time: None, just a few min­utes to set

Serves: 8 balls

Nu­tri­tional in­for­ma­tion: Pro­tein – 10g

Fats – 4g Car­bo­hy­drates – 6g Calo­ries –117 2½ scoops of vanilla pro­tein pow­der

20g raw ca­cao pow­der or co­coa pow­der

40g por­ridge oats

40g unsweet­ened des­ic­cated co­conut, plus ex­tra for coat­ing

50ml al­mond milk Pinch of salt Mix all the in­gre­di­ents in a bowl. Keep mix­ing un­til all the dry in­gre­di­ents stick to­gether.

If you still find the mix­ture to be slightly dry, add in an ex­tra ta­ble­spoon of al­mond milk.

Di­vide into eight equal por­tions and roll into balls be­tween the palms of your hands.

Roll in the re­main­ing des­ic­cated co­conut.

Leave to set for a few min­utes, ide­ally in the fridge, un­til they are firm.

These bars are best stored in an air­tight con­tainer in the fridge
