Banana Bread Protein Bites

These Banana Bread Protein Bites are filled with natural goodness and of course are packed with protein!

I have been training for a marathon and these bites really are a winner when it comes to getting enough protein in and fuelling my body. I simply make a batch and snack on them throughout the week!

They are amazing to have as a pre or post workout snack, giving you that extra energy kick and helping your muscles recover! All that and they also taste absolutely delicious! Win win!

Method

 

  1. Start by placing the almonds in your food processor and blend for about one minute until it forms a flour like texture.
  2. Then remove the pits from the medjool dates and peel the banana.
  3. Now simply add the dates, banana, chia seeds, flaxseeds, vanilla powder and Raw Plant Protein to the almond flour and mix until it forms a sticky substance.
  4. Once thats done grab a teaspoon and scoop out a spoonful, then roll it in your hands to form a ball. Repeat this until you finish the mixture.
  5. As a topping you roll them into chia seeds or hemp seeds, which will stick nicely!

You can place them straight into your fridge to let them set or to simply store them.

The best Baobab energy balls

 

We all need that little pick up sometimes and these Baobab energy balls are perfect for giving you a little energy boost! I have recently fallen in love with the new super fruit named Baobab. I’ve written an article about all the amazing benefits Baobab offers (click here to read it) and you’ll be surprised with the fact that we should actually be adding this to our daily diet! These energy balls have Baobab powder in them and they are full of iron and vitamin C that gives you that little boost you need!

I love making these energy balls as they are quick and easy to make and they are perfect for a healthy snack or as a pre workout! I always keep them in my fridge and as I make quite a big batch every time I can enjoy them at any time of the day and even on the go. Especially on stressful and busy days these are perfect to give you that little extra boost you need! Plus, they are super yum!
