This week we have another quick and easy recipe with these peanut butter and coconut balls. These cheap as chips snacks are not only great for building muscle; they taste pretty darn good too! Quick and simple to make, they are ideal for snacking on or top up calories throughout the day. Being high in protein, healthy fats and containing plenty of fibre, they are also a lot less likely to damage your physique compared to a Snickers bar or similar!
- 250g quick oats
- 130g natural peanut butter
- 175ml skimmed milk
- 6 scoops chocolate protein powder (we used Myprotein Impact Whey Isolate Chocolate Smooth flavour)
- 15 dried plums (or similar) cut into tiny pieces
- 65g crushed cashew nuts
- 40g desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 2 tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tbsp. honey
Mix all the dry ingredients except for the desiccated coconut in a large bowl.
Place the coconut oil in a seperate bowl and microwave to melt.
Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well, then add milk, peanut butter and honey.
Make sure everything is mixed evenly and fairly sticky.
Using a spoon scoop out enough mixture to fit in the palm of your hand then using hands roll into small balls.
Roll each ball into the shredded coconut and place on a seperate plate.
Place all balls in the fridge for thirty minutes to an hour.
