SNOUNTY BALLS: VERY EASY VEGAN PROTEIN BALLS RECIPE

This week we have something a little bit different, a guest blog post by the wonderful Hannah Parry of www.hannahparry.co.uk and writer of the blog Hannah the Traveller.

Why are they called Snounty Balls I hear you cry! Because they taste like an exact cross between a Snickers and a Bounty, that's why. They're incredibly easy to make: you only need a bowl and spoon (no messy mixers to wash up), and if you are even lazier than me you don't have to roll them into balls. Try pressing the mixture into a tray and topping with coconut before cutting into sections. And what about different coatings? The possibilities are endless...

​Nutritional Information approx. per ball
  • Calories 82
  • Fat 4.9g
  • Carbs 5.5g
  • Protein 3.4g

​Ingredients
  • ​200g crunchy peanut butter (I used Whole Earth but be sure to check that the palm oil used is sustainably sourced)
  • 80ml maple syrup
  • 50g rolled oats
  • ​25g chocolate protein powder
  • ​20g desiccated coconut PLUS another 20g for rolling/topping

Method
​Weigh the peanut butter and maple syrup into a mixing bowl and combine using a wooden spoon. Add the oats, protein powder and 20g of coconut and continue stirring until you have a kind of dough that you could roll - sticky but not too sticky. If it's too wet add a little more protein, it it's too dry then add a drop of water.

​Break off pieces and roll between your palms into balls. The balls will end up about 3cm across. Pour more coconut onto a plate and roll the balls in it until coated. You should get about 25 balls from this recipe. Refrigerate if you can resist trying them. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Easy right? You could try rolling them in sesame seeds, cocoa powder, icing sugar, linseeds, poppy seeds... what else?
