Chia Protein Bites

With high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron and dietary fibre, chia seeds pack a pretty decent nutrient punch.

With high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, iron and dietary fibre, chia seeds pack a pretty decent nutrient punch.

I add them to just about anything (smoothies, salads, raw desserts, sprinkled on roast vegetables...the list goes on).

They're a great addition to protein balls like these Chia Protein Bites because they help to keep you feeling fuller for longer. I like to add quite a few in this recipe (1/2 a cup) to give the balls some crunch (and I highly recommend drizzling the finished product in some dark chocolate because, like chia seeds, I'll add chocolate to just about anything).

Directions

1. Mix the protein powder, coconut, chia seeds, crushed nuts/seeds and cacao powder together in a bowl. Add the melted coconut oil, rice malt syrup and water and stir until well combined. 2. Line a tray with baking paper. Roll the mixture into balls and place on the tray. Leave in the fridge or freezer for a couple of hours until set. 3. Once set, melt the dark chocolate in a microwave or using a double boiler. Using a teaspoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the balls and allow to set in the fridge. Store the balls in the fridge or freezer.
