Peppermint Cream Protein Bites

Peppermint Balls

These remind me of my first recipe - peppermint creams. Me and my best buddy used to make it all the time, much to the dismay of our mums - the creams got stuck to the worktop, the food colouring stained the floor, and we left an icing sugar dusting all over the kitchen. Thankfully this recipe is a whole lot tidier, healthier but still yummy. I would like to dedicate this to my oldest buddy - Gemma - thanks for being you xxx

Peppermint is an awesome tool for easing sinus congestion with hayfever, but also it helps relax the digestive tract and disperse bodily gas, helping to ease wind and bloating

Here is my recipe

- 100g ground almonds
- 50g desiccated coconut
- 50g vanilla protein powder
- 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup
- 1 tbsp of almond butter
- 2-3 drops of peppermint essence

1. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and stir well
2. Mix the maple syrup and almond butter in a separate bowl
3. Mix together and add the chocolate. It should be crumbly
4. Now add the milk, 1 tbsp at a time to make it doughy
5. Line a container with cling film and press the mixture into the container and set in the fridge for 30-45min before cutting up and portioning off
6. Keep the rest in an airtight container in the fridge for 1 week or in the freezer
