What You Need
1 cup Select Foods Almond Meal
1 cup Niulife Shredded Coconut
3 Tbsp peanut butter (no added salt or sugar)
2 Tbsp Eco Cacao Nibs/ or flour
2 Tbsp Wattle Grove Rice Malt Syrup
1 Tbsp Amazonia Vanilla & Almond WPI
How To Make Them
Mix ingredients together until well combined, and form into balls. If the balls don't stick together, try adding an extra drizzle of rice malt syrup.
To make them even tastier, roll balls in some crushed peanuts or shredded coconut.
Why We Love Amazonia WPI
Finding a protein supplement that's natural and healthy is hard enough. But when we found out that Amazonia's WPI (whey protein isolate) is also a prebiotic – we were sold.
Getting plenty of protein is essential for good health, muscle growth and repair and immunity. Prebiotics help to feed good bacteria in the digestive tract, boosting immunity, digestive function and absorption of nutrients.
How to use it: Add it into your smoothies and juices, your baked and sweet treats, or just enjoy a protein shake made with water or your milk of choice.
Why We Love Eco Cacao Nibs/ Or flour
Crunchy, chocolatey cacao nibs are delicious, and Eco's Cacao Nibs are no exception. These organic nibs are full of minerals, vitamins, fibre and antioxidants to keep you feeling happy and healthy.
Cacao is also well-known for containing compounds that stimulate our 'feel-good' brain chemicals. By including cacao nibs in your diet, you help your brain to produce happy chemicals.
How to use it: Sprinkle it over desserts and icecream, and add it as a crunchy chocolate hit in your cereal or oats. Some people even just munch on a small handful in place of chocolate!
Why We Love Niulife Shredded Coconut
Niulife's Shredded Coconut is a staple in the Mandurah Health Supply kitchen. Coconut is such a versatile ingredient, adding fresh flavour to both sweet and savoury dishes.
However, shredded coconut is also full of health benefits. It's a great source of fibre and medium chain fatty acids that help you maintain a healthy weight and steady energy levels.
How to use it: Add to sweet dishes, desserts and treats, or savoury it up with soups and curries – the choice is yours! You can also add it to your smoothies for a tropical flavour.
