Oh and we forgot to mention…these are ‘no-bake’ so there’s no cooking involved!

 

Ingredients

 

This recipe makes around 15 protein bites (depending on the size you make them!)

 

– 60ml Coconut Butter (Melted)Peanut Butter

 

– 60ml Honey (Natural)

 

– 55g Myprotein Peanut Butter

 

– 1tsp Vanilla Extract / Paste

 

– 150g Myprotein Rolled Oats

 

– 1 Scoop Myprotein Impact Whey Protein Powder (Vanilla or Banana works well)

 

– 60g Dark Chocolate Chips OR 50g Raisins

 

 

Method

 

1) Heat the coconut butter and honey just enough so we can mix them together well – add these to a saucepan and warm on a low heat until the mixture comes together – do not boil.

 

2) Remove from the heat.

 

3) Add the vanilla extract and oats to the saucepan and stir very thoroughly ensuring all the oats are well coated in the honey and melted coconut butter mixture.

 

4) Stir through the protein powder ensuring the mixture is evenly combined.

 

5) Allow to cool for 10 mins. This will start the mixture setting and most importantly ensure you dont burn your hands.

 

6) Mix in the dark chocolate chips or raisins. Obviously raisins are the healthier option but not everyone likes these.

 

 

Prepare

 

You now have two options on how to prepare the bites:

 

Option 1:

Take tablespoons of the mixture in your hands and roll into balls, place on a non stick baking sheet and allow to set. We prefer this option as it requires less work.

 

Option 2:

Pour the mixture into a baking tray lined with parchment paper and push down to form a slab. Allow to set and then slice up.

To get these to set and harden up faster just stick them in the fridge. The coconut butter in the mixture will solidify really quickly. These can then be stored in an airtight container at room temperature. But if your house is very warm you might want to store them in a fridge if you find them too soft.

 

Store in an airtight container –  these should last for several days… if you can resist!

 

…Enjoy!
