Quest Protein Snow Balls


It was a cold rainy Saturday (like most Saturdays in England through January) and I had munchies GALORE! So I’m flicking through Instagram Stories (don’t you just love that IG feature that now? So much easier having all of your favourite social media features on one application in my opinion… I barely ever feel the need to use Snap Chat now unless there’s a particular Athlete I follow using it.) Anyhooo…. One of the ladies I follow (mariaok_dk – be sure to check her out for fitness and foodie inspo) was making these scrummy looking protein balls… and just like that I was in the kitchen seeing what ingredients I had available to me to create my own. This is what I came up with:

Ingredients:
24g of Dr Zaks rich chocolate protein peanut butter powder (you can get this from musclefood.com and it’s a lot cheaper than other powdered peanut butters with less fats and higher protein also)
1 scoop of Quest chocolate protein powder
100g Porridge Oats
15g Chia Seeds
15g Desiccated Coconut
1 cup of water

It was as simple as:

Lining a Tupperware with grease proof paper, combining all of the ingredients in a bowl except the coconut which your going to need to keep in a bowl of its own, mix in your water, half a cup at a time and using a spoon really give it a good mix so there is no dry mixture to be seen – this is going to be super sticky and a little messy but you then need to roll the mixture into little balls – I got around 9 balls out of the mixture and then roll each ball individually in the coconut – this removes the stickiness and adds a tiny bit extra healthy fat.

Refridgerate for about 20 minutes and they are good to demolish!

Macros based on the ingredients mentioned above per ball if you make 9 like I did are:

Carbs: 8g, Fat 2.8g, Protein 5.2g
