Raw Chocolate Protein Treats

Who doesn’t love a raw, low carb protein ball !! I made these up in a matter of minutes when you’ve maxed out on your daily carb intake but need to catch up on fats and protein, you know what I mean, right?? Well with less than 1 g of carbs per serving these might just make it a lot easier when you want something sweet without the carbs!  Warning they take a bit of elbow grease to form the dough like texture but it’s worth it!  Yummy with a nice cup of coffee!

Ingredients

75 g (3 scoops) Chocolate Protein Powder

15 g (3 tbsp) Cacao Powder

40 g Ground Almonds (Almond Flour)

25 g Coconut Oil

2 – 4 tbsp Water

Some desiccated coconut or chopped hazelnuts to decorate.

Method

In a large bowl mix together the protein powder, cacao powder and the ground Almonds.

Melt the coconut oil (I pop it in the microwave) and add to the dry ingredients along with 2 tablespoons of water.

Now the tricky bit! Combine all the ingredients together, you want a dough like consistency so a bit of elbow grease is required.  If you find the mixture is still too dry add another tablespoon of water.  Keep mixing, yes it takes a little bit of work but it does finally come together.  Add the fourth tablespoon of water if needed.

I put the mix into the fridge for 15 to 20 mins to chill before rolling into bite size balls, as it tends to be a little sticky!

Shape the balls and roll in some of the coconut or whatever you choose to decorate!

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days, well that’s if they last that long!

Nutritional Information

I get 10 bite size balls, each serving is equal to 80 calories, Carbs 0.7g, Fat 5.2g, Protein 7.4g.
