Pineapple Protein Balls

These are the perfect little afternoon snack in order to fuel up before an evening gym session. Alternatively they are just as good as a post gym snack to re-energise and refuel on the way home. 

This recipe is really simple to make and you can easily play around with the flavours you add in order to make something that you will find tasty! 

These will keep in the fridge for up to a week. If you're taking them to work, refrigerate them until you want to eat them.

   Pineapple Protein Balls

METHOD:

Bring all your ingredients together in a bowl- there is no right or wrong way to add them together.

For the pineapple I tend to use the pulp after it has been juiced, if you don't have a juicer this is not a problem - just make sure you chop the pineapple super small!

Once all the ingredients are well combined and evenly distributed start to take little walnut sized amounts of mixture and roll it into a ball. Place in the fridge to set and enjoy!
