A High protein, sugar free and portable snack- Perfect fuel in between meals or as a pre or post workout boost! Vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free! Add coloured sprinkles and give it to someone special this Valentine's Day!
In a large mixing bowl, combine crispy rice cereal, 1 cup of shredded coconut and protein powder of choice (if using it). Mix well and set aside.
In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the coconut oil and homemade hazelnut butter/nutella and microwave until melted. Mix well to combine then add to dry mixture. Add in almond milk and mix very well until fully incorporated.
In a small bowl, add the remaining coconut and sprinkles if using it. Using your hands, form small- medium sized balls and dip in the coconut mixture and set on a plate. Continue the process until all the batter is used up. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.
Protein powder is optional. Depending on protein powder you use, you may need to adjust the almond milk used. Whey tends to require less and casein can be up to 3/4 cup. As mentioned in the post, during the forming process, continually wet your hands slightly to make it easier. Treats can be left at room temperature but best kept in the fridge.Adapted from Loosely Adapted from Coles Supermarkets
