Protein balls are a quick and easy way to get a snack in at work with no mess! These are a perfect thing to make in bulk and grab when you're busy - but need a little sweet treat to pick you up!
Lamington Protein Balls
1 cup instant oats
½ cup desiccated coconut
2 Tbsp cacao
1/3 cup Yes Please Vanilla Milkshake Protein
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp rice malt syrup
1/3 cup water
2 Tbsp strawberry jam (if you can get a low sugar option..get it!)
¼ cup extra desiccated coconut for rolling
- Combine the oats, coconut, cacao and protein powder in a bowl.
- Heat the coconut oil and rice malt syrup together in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and add to the dry ingredients with the water.
- Roll a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into a ball. Create a deep hole in the centre with your thumb and drop a little jam inside. Press the edges together to seal, roll to reshape into a ball then coat in coconut. Repeat with remaining mixture. Store in the fridge.
