Raw Vegan Coconut and Chocolate Protein Energy Balls

25 Jul

This was something I wanted to try for ages! I used to make little peanut butter versions, but I wanted to make a healthier, vegan version that was both a brill snack and packed with energy.

You will need:
150-200g of coconut butter
25g raw coconut oil
2 scoops of sun warrior’s raw protein
250g of soaked (overnight) dates, raisins, figs or apricots or a mix of all 4 (which I did.)
3 tbsp of raw cacao, powdered
Some desiccated coconut

Method:
Remove the liquid from the soaked fruit and place the fruit in a blender or food processer.
Add in the rest of the ingredients, except for the desiccated coconut and whizz until it forms a ball or a paste like texture.
Roll the dough into walnut size balls and roll in the desiccated coconut, chill and eat within five days.
They can be served at room temperature or cold, but do keep them stored in the fridge

Enjoy Eoin
