Really Yummy Peanut Butter And Chocolate Protein Balls
I love healthy eating and going to the gym. I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth, and when I get a sugar craving a couple of pieces of Green & Blacks keeps me happy!
I am sceptical about alleged ‘healthy’ snacks…I would generally prefer one piece of my yummy Green & Blacks to several dodgy ‘healthy’ alternatives. These bad boys proved me and my entire family wrong…they were whipping them out of my fridge at every opportunity! With peanut butter and flax seed amongst the ingredients…its win, win, win!!
270g Crunchy Peanut Butter
2 Bananas well mashed
2 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
2 tbsp Flax Seeds
1 tsp Stevia
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
3-4 tbsp Sweet Desiccated Coconut
With the exception of the coconut which you need at the end, put the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix the rest of the ingredients together thoroughly.
Make them into truffle sized balls or slightly larger if you fancy!
Take each of the balls and roll them in the coconut to cover.
Place them in a container lined with baking paper. Try to keep to a single layer, if you need another layer, add another sheet of baking paper.
Put in the freezer for two hours then transfer to the fridge.
Enjoy, guilt free with a cuppa!
This is a must for clean eating….with the added bonus of having a heavenly taste. Full of good fats and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, let’s face it, what’s there not to love ❤️?

Juice of 1 1/2 limes

Add the chilli’s, tomatoes, spring onions to a food processor and whizz up.
Add the avocado and whizz again.
Add the lime juice and salt and whizz to mix.

One for my clean eating friends! Preparation is the key to clean eating……this way you won’t fall prey to last minute shortcuts….like a takeaway or sandwich!!
You can see in my picture here, I actually whipped this one up in the morning and re-heated it for dinner. My kids loved it too!!
Asian Chicken and Broccoli
1 Chicken Breast
6-7 Broccoli Florets

Tsp Sesame Seeds
A Few Mushrooms sliced
Add the oil to a frying pan or wok and add the chicken, cook until just turning brown.

Continue cooking for a few mins. I sometimes add a dash of water whilst frying.

Serve with some brown rice if you want a wee carb element.
