Quick and easy no bake deliciousness!
One of my beautiful clients is Eva’s Wellbeing supplements and for out latest shoot I was asked to create a couple of recipes using their protein powders.
To explain a bit more about the proteins, these are made from high quality Canadian grown peas, and the Naked protein has an extremely subtle flavour and super smooth texture, making it a perfect pantry staple.
It also contains all nine essential amino acids, vegan, 100% natural, high in iron, high in protein! AND ever better, NO additives or preservatives and no synthetic flavours or colours.
The first recipe I wanted to create was a sweet treat, yet still high in protein so I worked on these choco peanut butter protein truffle bites using Eva’s Naked protein.
These are a mixture between your regular bliss balls, but a little fudgier and sweeter to cover any sweet cravings you have after the gym or during a busy work day. They are also very simple and only use a few ingredients so make the perfect weekday snack 😊
Rolled oats – They have a great texture and really worked well in this recipe.
Peanut butter – I like to use Pics crunchy peanut butter as it has a wonderful consistency for mixing- the more drippy the better as it’s easier to mix in. If you only have a dry or solid nut butter then a quick blast in the microwave will help to thin it out. If you are allergic to nuts then tahini also works well.
Maple syrup or Honey – For Vegan protein balls, use maple syrup instead. This hint of sweetness really makes the flavour pop.
Protein powder – Eva’s unflavoured pea protein or a similar Vegan protein (regular protein powder can also be used)
Cocoa or quality chocolate Powder
Pumpkin seeds – to add some extra nutrition and a crunch.
Sesame seeds – to coat the protein balls.
This is a no bake recipe, so it takes about 5 minutes to complete making it SO accessible even for a busy schedule.
