Coffee Protein Balls – think of them as a box of chocolates…
You know when you find a recipe that you LOVE. You feel torn between sharing these delicious bites and stashing them in a secret place.
Let’s be honest… whenever can you have a moreish snack that looks and taste like a box of chocolates, but it’s totally healthy.
When you eat these – you are actually doing your body a favour.
Yes, a box-of-chocolates-favour!
Make sure, like me, you diligently taste-test each coated coffee protein ball.
Almond-coconut… chia seeds… cacao… sesame seeds… whatever the coating, it all tasted divine!
Last night, we pulled out a box for dessert. Everyone loved them. Watch out if you share them… you’ll probably get orders from family and friends.
Life is like a box a coffee protein balls… you always know what you’re gonna get… healthier!
