I made some more protein balls and this time I made a note of the ingredients. These make a really nice mid-morning or late-afternoon snack when you’re hungry but don’t want to spoil the next meal. The coconut condensed milk is something I’ve discovered recently and it’s available at Ocado. If you’re in Aberdeen you can get it at Newton Dee and Foodstory. Holland & Barrett sell pea protein powder.
1/2 cup pea protein powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/4 cup coconut condensed milk
1/4 cup soya (or other non-dairy milk)
ground hazelnuts for rolling the balls in at the end
Soak the chia seeds in 3 tablespoons of water for ten minutes. While they’re soaking combine all the other ingredients in a bowl except for the hazelnuts. Add the chia seeds and mix everything really well until it’s a nice, gooey consistency. Then create small balls with a diameter of 2-3cm and roll them in the ground hazelnuts. Eat!
