Chocolate & Banana Protein Balls

These are so delicious and only takes 10 minutes to make! They are packed with protein so they make the perfect post-gym snack and they're lovely and sweet making them a great, healthy, sugar craving cure!


Ingredients (makes 6)

1/2 banana
2 large tbsp of peanut butter
6 brazil nuts
2 tsp Agarve syrup
1 tbsp honey (double syrup and remove honey for vegan)
1 tbsp (gluten free) oats
1 heaped tbsp raw cocao powder
1 tbsp desiccated coconut
Start by crushing the brazil nuts in to small pieces. I used a pestle & mortar but a rolling pin would work too!
Add the raw cocao and syrup and start to fold everything together. Add the peanut butter gradually. Crush the banana and add it to the mixture with the honey which will help bind it all together. If you want to add some protein powder (I use pea protein) then add desired amount for extra nutritional goodness!
Once everything is mixed in evenly, separate it into 4 sections and roll into your palms until they are perfectly round.
Shake the coconut onto a chopping board and roll each ball in until it is nicely coated.
Put in the fridge to set (if you can wait longer than I could!)
