These protein bites are a great source of natural energy. They allow for a healthy digestive system and help keep cravings at bay by being a slow energy release food. They also have an abundance of dietary fibre making them great for avoiding constipation. It’s high content of potassium outdoes bananas and they even make you look better by aiding with muscle tone so these guys are perfect for when you are training and in the throes of an exercise regime!
The recipe is easy and can be altered. You can add cranberry, blueberry or gogi berry. Today I used Hazelnuts and dried shredded coconut. They are yum eaten straight away or else left in the fridge where they can go that little bit harder. They can last about a week or more too! So make a great meal prep energy food!
1/2 cup of hazelnuts
1/2 cup of coconut shavings
1/2 cup of cranberries
2 tablespoons of cacao powder
1 small tablespoon of vanilla essence
1 small tablespoon of coconut palm sugar
1/2 cup of gluten free oatmeal
1 Teaspoons of :

Then add the cranberries, cacao, coconut palm sugar, vanilla essence, and remaining ingredients.
Mix. Then it is ready.
Separate the mixture and mould into either protein balls or brownies/bars.
