Chocolate Coated Protein Balls


In my opinion EVERYTHING tastes better it it's coated in chocolate. 
These protein balls are no exception.

Keep reading for the recipe.






Ingredients

1 Scoop of About Time Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tbsp Edward & Son's Coconut Flour
1 Tbsp Water

1/2 Tbsp Jarrow Coconut Oil
1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder



Directions

Mix the protein powder and coconut flour together in a bowl
Add half of the water and stir
The mixture may seem too dry, but it will come together
Add the rest of the water and mix until you have a dry but moist mixture
You should be able to roll the mixture into balls without it sticking to your hands, and with the balls retaining their shape
Roll the mixture into balls the size of a 20c piece
Put them in the fridge to firm up while making the chocolate

Melt the coconut oil in a bain marie or the microwave
Add the cocoa powder and mix until there are no lumps
Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly
(not too long or it will begin to set!)
Roll your protein balls in the chocolate until completely coated
Place on a silicone mat or baking paper
Return to the fridge for the chocolate to set

Makes 1 serve (5 balls)
