Choc Chip Protein Balls

These are seriously yummy! I have found it difficult finding alternative ingredients to dates and other dried fruit when making bliss balls (low fodmap problems!) but these protein balls are the perfect solution!

1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes **
1/2 cup oats (I use GF oats)
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
1 tbsp rice malt syrup (adjust depending on the sweetness of your protein powder)
handful of chocolate buttons (I use vegan dark choc)
sprinkle of salt
vanilla paste

1. Add all ingredients to a food processor / Thermomix and blitz until the mixture becomes sticky and comes together. Add a dash of water if needed.
2. Roll into balls and let set in the fridge for 2 hours.
3. Enjoy!

** if you sub for desiccated / shredded coconut, you will need to add a dash of water so the mixture comes together
