5 Ingredient Protein Balls | Recipe

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-8-02-24-pmIt’s time to share my easiest, most loved protein balls. These are great to have when you’re craving a little chocolate but want to stay on track or post workout. Do you have a recipe that tops mine on the taste test – please leave me a comment and tag me in on Instagram

  • 1/2 a cup of cashews
  • 2tbs coconut oil
  • 2tbs of your favourite nut butter
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds
  • 1 scoop of protein powder – I’ve used myprotein natural chocolate whey

Now for the fun part…

  1. Pop all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix together, (or let your blender do the work)
  2. Use the palm of your hands to roll the mixture into small equal sized balls and then drop into a bowl of desiccated coconut and roll
  3. Finally pop them into your fridge for as long as you can keep your hands away, should keep for around four or five days if you can resist!
