  1. […] Snacking: After lunch I always feel peckish. Time for a delicious treat. Forget all the crisps and chocolate bars. The solution is called protein balls. These little energy treats are packed with superfoods and help you gain real energy after your lunchtime low. These coconut bliss balls are absolutely fantastic and super delicious. Especially now during the winter months it makes you feel a bit tropical and you can almost imagine the hot sun shining on your body on a nice beach with palm trees all over. Too bad I live in England. Anyway, the recipe can be found here.  […]

    These are delicious and, when you are a reluctant dieter like me, a healthy energy-providing snack when that chasm opens up between meals!

    These are actually amazing! I made one for my toddler without the macadamia in the middle and she loved it!!! How many is this mix supposed to make?

      Hi Jade, I am so pleased. I think it depends on the size you make 🙂 It could be a few big ones or many small ones. x

    Could a Protien Powder be added to this recipe? If so how much would you recommend

    • admin admin on October 3, 2017 at 11:16 am

      Of course. I would go for 1 Tbsp and add a little more liquid if needed. x

    Can you blitz the macadamia nuts instead of having them whole

    • admin admin on January 11, 2018 at 10:12 am

      If you don’t want to use the whole macadamia nuts you can leave them out. 🙂 x
