Chocolate Cherry Bites

Protein copy

You may have gathered by now that I LOVE chocolate, and have recently moved from the sweetness of milk chocolate to the heavenliness of dark chocolate. Regularly, after I have trained, I fancy a boost mid morning - nothing too filling, but something I can grab out of the fridge, without feeling a running my lunch. I have rammed these full of natural protein in the form of almonds, oats and peanut butter, and added cherries because they are a great source of natural anti-inflammatories - good for post workouts! They are really easy to make and can be stored for up to a week in the fridge in an air tight container

The recipe is -

  • 1/4 cup of dried cherries
  • 1 tbsp of goji berries (optional)
  • 1 cup of dried dates
  • 1/2 cup of ground almond
  • 1/2 cup of gluten free oats
  • 2 tbsp of cocoa (high quality)
  • 50g chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp of dark chocolate buttons (again high quality)
  • 3 tbsp of organic peanut butter

1 - put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix well
2 - scrunch into little balls (adding more pent butter if they are too crumbly)
3 - pop in the fridge to set for 1 hour, or if you like them soft, much away
