Recipe | Raspberry & Coconut Protein Energy Balls

Pink Energy balls on wood board in pink bamboo bowl

In my quest to replace some of my less healthy eating choices with healthier options I stumbled across energy balls. I mean who wouldn't want a little energy pick me up in the form of a snack?

My struggle though was real when finding a recipe that worked for me as so many recipes featured either peanut butter, almonds or walnuts and using substitutes I couldn't seem to get the balls the right consistency to stay as balls.

After much kitchen experimentation I have found a combination which works. It has oats for energy, no refined sugars and protein to help fuel your muscles. The taste fresh and will leave you wanting 'just one more'.

METHOD

I feel a little silly writing this method because they are literally so simple. Basically blend, roll, coat, chill. 4 simple steps. 
  1. Put all of the ingredients, except the rolling coconut, into a food processor and blend until smooth. I use a Nutribullet for this and mix in two batches using half the ingredients then mix both batches together in a mixing bowl. Just because of the maximum volume in the Nutribullet. 
  2. Roll your mixture into balls in a size of your choice
  3. Coat/Roll in the extra coconut until evenly covered
  4. Place on a tray and chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes. 

Once chilled they are ready to eat. I usually portion mine into 3-4 balls to snack on through the day. When not being eaten, store in the fridge in a sealed container.
