❓What makes a good protein ball❓
MOIST- this is KEY 🔑! Nobody likes it dry, pasty, with crumbs falling everywhere. Ensure there’s enough nut butter, honey or add some water to make the consistency right!
CRUNCH- I like adding a subtle crunch. Roll them in coconut flakes, add raw cacao nibs, flax seeds, chocolate chips -the sky is the limit!
CHEWY – adding in banana and bit of honey to increase the chew factor.
NUTRITIONAL VALUE – pack in the nutrients! Ensure there’s fiber, protein, antioxidants and not too much sugar.
RAW -this is optimal to not degrade all the lovely nutritional benefits.
