One of the great joys of spending time in the kitchen is experimenting with random ingredients to see what you can come up. This week we are pleased to present our yummy tropical protein balls.
So delicious in fact that they were being eaten before going into the fridge to set properly.
And once they were, well, we almost had to make another another batch just to have some left!
They are made primarily of dried fruit, nuts and honey and are naturally sweet – they are sure to be a real crowd pleaser.
Check out the recipe below and see what you think? We are sure you will be a fan too. We would love to receive your feedback though so we can keep improving.
Caution. Depending upon your constitution, some people find these balls do 'keep them regular' so please be careful how many you consume until you know whether they might increase your bathroom calls!
- Half a cup of dried tropical fruits (we used mango and paw paw)
- Half a cup of dates
- 1 cup of crushed nuts
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of choc chips
- Half a cup of coconut (for coating)
- Water as needed if too dry.
- Prepare a baking tray beforehand and cover it with non stick baking paper
- Add all the ingredients except for the coconut unto a food processor and reduce down to a fine mix
- If it is too dry try adding small amounts of water to allow the ingredients to combine better
- Once you have a good mixture that will stick together, roll it into balls approx 1 inch (3cms) wide
- Roll each ball in the coconut to coat them before placing them on the baking sheet
- Once complete, place the tray in the fridge for an hour to set - we actually prefer them the next day but it is a personal choice
- The balls can then go into an airtight container back in the fridge or freezer.
