Protein balls in a bowl

Protein Balls in a Hurry

I love snacking on protein balls and while they are easy to make, doing it from scratch can take a bit of time. I’ve been super busy with work and travel lately, and making some balls has been on my to do list for ages. I’ve been having a protein shake here and there, but if I don’t have snacks, I never eat enough. After seeing my friend Loving Emily Jane making these on Instagram I knew I had to try them! I had never heard of The Fit Foodie before so I stalked her Instagram and found that you can buy a premix of dry ingredients mix for clean protein balls. The price is ok at $14.95 per bag, so I got two flavours. Cookie Dough and Vanilla & Coconut. The postage to SG was was $18.00 for 2 bags.

Firstly, the package is pretty, simple and easy to follow. All I had to add was honey, water and coconut oil.

The ingredients are light and fluffy and smells fantastic due to the vanilla and coconut, which both happen to be some of my most fave smells on earth!

All I had to do was mix the honey and the coconut oil together. You do need to make sure the coconut oil is at room temperature so that it mixes with the honey and does solidify.

Then you just made a well in the mixture and pour it in, and start mixing. I thought about using my bench mixer to do this, but the ingredients blended really well and it didn’t take long at all.

You will know when the mixture is ready for rolling as it gets quite sticky and all clumps together.

Now comes the messy and FUN bit of rolling the mixture into golf ball sized balls. The mixture rolls very well and doesn’t stick to your hands at all.

The packet says it will make about 15 balls, however I ended up with 20! (YUM) Once all the balls are rolled, put them on baking paper on a tray and pop into the fridge for 30mins for it to all set.
