So I’ve been lax with my blog-posting for a while, mainly because I’ve gone on a paleo journey that eschews all artificial forms of applying heat to food and consists mainly of shooting a passing woolly mammoth with a hand-carved bow and arrow.
Or maybe not.
But I was intrigued by this recipe for “protein balls”, and they were tasty – just watch out because the longer you leave them the longer they actually taste like beetroot, which I found odd in a dessert.
75g (2/3 cup) rolled oats
1 cooked, cooled beetroot (about 75g)
125g (1/2 cup) peanut butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon skimmed milk powder or protein powder
Coconut, cocoa powder, milled linseeds etc… for rolling
- In a food processor, whiz the oats until they are fine. Add all other ingredients and combine. Roll into teaspoon-sized balls, roll in coconut, cocoa etc… and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
