MissFits Nutrition were kind enough to send me samples of they're protein to use in my baking and post workout. I gave up dairy last year and lived of vegan protein such as hemp, pea protein which quite frankly were disgusting! So I reverted back to good old whey protein. Honestly, I don't know how they've done it but MissFits Nutrition pea protein is so tasty, it actually mixes with water and milk, unlike all the others I've tried.
In this recipe I used the berry protein, however they have some amazing other flavours including vanilla, chocolate and coffee! Check out their full range at missfitsnutrition.com
I'm a big fan of raw balls, so simple to make and you don't need a lot of ingredients. These taste like turkish delights! Plus, you know these are good when your mother, who hates anything remotely healthy asks you to keep her a few to eat..I'd say that's a success.
1 cup of dates that has been soaked in warm water
1/2 cup of almonds
1tbsp of chia seeds
1 sachet of MissFits Nutrition berry protein
1 Large dark chocolate bar
1 tbsp of coconut oil
Handful of frozen raspberries
In a food processor add the dates, nuts and chia seeds and mix together until the dates have broken down. Ensure you scrape down the side to combine all of the mixture.
Add the protein and mix all ingredients on a high speed until the mixture is combined, but still sticky.
With a teaspoon spoon out enough mixture to fill the spoon and roll into a ball.
Place to balls onto a plate and into the fridge to harden.
Fill a saucepan with water and place on a simmering heat.
In a heat proof bowl, break up the chocolate bar into pieces and add the coconut oil.
Place over the simmering water and stir until the chocolate has completely melted.
Break up the frozen raspberries into small pieces.
Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, dip each raw ball into the chocolate, then add the frozen raspberries on top. Continue this until all raw balls have been covered.
