Looking for a low carb chocolate fix with added protein? Then these are worth a try!
They are also gluten free and full of good fats making them the perfect snack when on the go and craving chocolate.
I have used Choc Chic organic cocoa powder in this recipe. You can buy cocoa from any health food store and in most supermarkets and it can be used in lots of recipes.
Use a good quality peanut butter like Whole Earth or Pip & Nut. Both brands taste amazing and supply their ingredients from sustainable sources.
Unfortunately the picture above isn’t mine I forgot to take one and before I realised we had eaten them. (Oops!)
Each ball contains 93 cals, 5.9g Fat, 3g Carbs, 6.2g Protein.
Will make roughly 10 balls.
20g x Cocoa powder (extra for dusting)
1 scoop x Whey protein (chocolate or vanilla)
Wholeearth crunchy peanut butter x 70g
25g x Ground flaxseed
25g x Ground almonds
2 x tbsp Honey
1 x tbsp Milk
Weigh out the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Heat the peanut butter and honey for 10-20 seconds in a microwave to make this a little runny.
Add the peanut butter, honey and milk, then mix all the ingredients until combined.
If the mixture isn’t binding well you can add more liquid however, you must do this gradually or you could turn the mixture into a soggy mess.
The mixture should form into a large ball in the bowl.
Sprinkle the extra cocoa powder onto a clean work surface or chopping board.
Take small handfuls of the mixture and roll into balls then roll these in the cocoa powder to give them a light coating.
Store them in an air tight container in the fridge!
Let me know what you think? If you do decide to give them a try i’d love to hear from you.
