Recipe: Cherry Chocolate Chip Protein Balls

We've teamed up with the cherry experts, CMI, to bring you more tasty recipe ideas

Rather than pick up a protein bar, or pre-made post workout treat, make your own delicious snacks.

If working out, or having a hard cycle session wasn’t rewarding enough, top it off with home-baked power bites. We love finding new tasty recipes to try out at home, and what’s better, is that they’re healthy and delicious.

The Cherry experts, CMI, have been educating us on the wonderful benefits of cherries and how easy it can be to add these scrummy fruits to our trail and workout snacks.

This week we had a go at making some delicious Cherry Chocolate Chip Protein Balls.

Directions

Once all the ingredients have been carefully weighed and measured, add them into a large mixing bowl.

Mix all the ingredients together until well blended and thoroughly mixed.

Pop the bowl into the fridge to cool down for roughly 30 mins.

Once chilled, roll balls of the mixture into whatever size you like, or use an ice-cream scoop for moulding into shape.

Store your cherry chocolate protein balls in an airtight container, and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Tasty lovely protein balls packed full on everything you need for an energy boost, and post workout treat.
