Step Up Your 2020 Snacking Game With This Salted Chocolate Protein Balls Recipe

The most vital part of any healthy diet is nailing the nutritional make-up of your main meals, but the importance of snacking should never be underestimated. All the chicken-breast-and-broccoli dinners in the world won’t bring your weight down if you stuff your face with cake and biscuits in between.

One surefire way to ensure your snacks don’t derail a healthy diet is to make them yourself because it’s basically impossible to sneak a load of added sugar into something you’re making yourself without realizing it’s happening.

This salted caramel protein balls recipe from Body Design ticks all the boxes for a fulfilling yet healthy treat. It contains oats, cashews and almond butter to fill you up with unsaturated fats and fiber, plus dates and a little dark chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Best of all, the protein balls shouldn’t take more than a jiffy to make. Plus an hour in the freezer to set, but you don’t have to be there for that.

  • ½ cup (75g) oats

  • ½ cup (55g) cashews

  • 1½ cup (260g) dates

  • Drizzle of melted dark chocolate (you can decide on what that means, but if you go overboard, expect the nutritional info below to change drastically)
