These Date, Walnut, Coconut and Cocoa Protein Balls are the perfect healthy snack. They are full of good stuff, taste great and are really satisfying. Plus they are so easy to make!
Ingredients (makes 12)
- 100g walnuts
- 250g Forest Feast pitted dates
- 100g desiccated coconut
- 1 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 3 Tbsp Chocolate protein powder
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- Pinch of salt
- Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until completely blended.
- Shape small handfuls into balls about the size of a walnut.
The best thing about these little balls is their versatility; so you can change the ingredients depending on what you have in the cupboard. The dates and honey make them nice and sweet, but you could substitute the honey for coconut oil or peanut butter which would also taste great. If you don’t have protein powder, leave it out. Almonds or oats would be great instead of walnuts. The possibilities are endless!
I like the fact I can chuck one of these in my bag and know I have a healthy snack that tastes good and fills me up. Give them a go!
