Guilt free chocolate protein balls and “walnutty” slices

Oh the post holiday blues!  😉

This blog post will hopefully help with it. I chose 2 really yummy desserts/snacks to help you through the first few days back at work and/or gym – running – yoga…. you name it!

Both are super easy, no baking required – just awesome, delicious and healthy ingredients!

Vegan chocolate protein truffles:


  • 2.5 ripe bananas
  • 150g almonds
  • 150g shredded coconut
  • 50g dried blueberries
  • 50g dried cherries
  • 20g organic cacao powder
  • some extra cacao for the coating of the ready truffles


Place the almonds and dried fruit in a food processor and process until well chopped.

Use a fork to mash the bananas, first add the cacao powder, then the coconut and the chopped fruit with the almonds. Once you mixed them all, shape medium sized truffle balls and cover them in the extra cacao. Keep them in the fridge! Enjoy x

Walnutty slices


  • 250g prunes
  • 100g dates
  • 150g activated walnuts (to ‘activate’ them – soak them for a couple of hours in filtered water and let them dry)
  • pinch of organic vanilla powder
  • 150g walnut pieces


cacao_powderRaw chocolate ingredients:

  • 50g raw cacao butter
  • 15g raw cacao powder
  • 15g agave syrup


Melt the cacao butter and mix in the cacao powder and agave syrup over steam to create the raw chocolate.

Use a food processor or blender to chop the prunes, dates and activated walnuts. Mix in the raw chocolate and walnut pieces. Create 2 bars and place them in the freezer for half an hour. After this it will be easy to slice them. You can keep it in the fridge, although you might not have a chance to put anything in the fridge as it’s just too yum 😉

Hope you’ll enjoy them either pre or post exercise as your healthy afternoon pick me up or even breakkie.
