Wednesday 12th of June 2013 10:52:01 AM

Recipe: Protein Balls

Add a tablespoon of chocolate flavoured protein powder. These aren't exactly low calorie treats but they are full of protein and as many unprocessed organic ingredients as possible.

100g chopped walnuts or cashews, lightly toasted

100g almonds, lightly toasted

2 tbsp linseed, sunflower seeds and/or pepitas

170g medjool dates, pitted and chopped

100g soft dried apricots or figs, chopped

100g prunes, pitted and chopped

1 tbsp tahini or peanut butter

2 tbsp raw cacao powder or cocoa powder

1 tbsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp honey or agave syrup, Pinch of sea salt

100g desiccated coconut for coating

1. Combine the walnuts, almonds and seeds in a food processor and whiz until fine crumbs. Add the dates, apricots and prunes and whiz until smooth. Add the tahini, cacao powder, cinnamon, honey and sea salt and whiz for two minutes or until the mixture starts to form into a ball.

2. Divide into golf ball-sized portions and roll into balls between lightly wet palms. Roll in coconut, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Tip Freezing makes them deliciously firm and chewy.

Makes 15 to 20
