A nutritious treat to satisfy any sweet craving, ideal for a morning pick me up, a pre-workout snack or as an energy bite to refuel during a prolonged cardio session (i.e. a long ride).
1 cup almond flour
1 scoop flavoured protein powder (I used the macademia and vanilla Purition)
100 g soft pitted dates
2 teaspoons cacao powder unsweetened
desiccated coconut for coating
1. Simply blend together the dates, almond flour, protein powder and cacao powder till you get a thick and sticky mix
2. Shape mixture into small balls using your hands and put in the fridge to firm for about 1 hour
3. Roll each ball in the desiccated coconut, serve and enjoy!
