.I just came up with a great way to add some more butter and fat to my diet. I made a new version of the chocolate balls recipe in my book. I love making new recipes and trying new ingredients. I added some protein powder (zero carb and zero sugar. Great brand can be found here) to add some protein, but also to add a sweet flavor.
Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 0 mins Total time: 10 mins
Extra buttery chocolate balls
• 1 stick of butter • 1/4 cup protein powder (I used chocolate) • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (1 cup in the recipe and 1/4 cup for covering the chocolate balls) • 1 tsp cold strong coffee • 1/4 cup cocoa (less if you don't want a strong chocolate flavor. Add little by little)
1. Take out the butter and keep it in room temperature a little bit before you start making the chocolate balls. 2. Meanwhile, spread out 1/4 cup of the coconut flakes on a plate and set aside. 3. Add all the ingredients in a large bowl. 4. Using your hands mix all the ingredients very well. 5. Take a small amount of the mix and roll it together into a ball. Roll the ball in the coconut flakes on the plate until they are covered. Place the finished balls in a glass container with lid. 6. Once all the chocolate balls are complete close the lid on the container and place them in the fridge. They can also be kept in the freezer.
The chocolate balls are great as a snack, or with coffee/tea after lunch or dinner to add some more fat to the meal. They will last in the fridge for about 3-4 days. Enjoy!
