One of my favourite protein snacks

These coconut balls keep well in the fridge and are a great way to get your chocolate fix.  This quick, healthy recipe makes approximately 12 balls.  I prefer to make small batches so I don’t eat too many.  Great to take to work too!

Ingredients:
– 3 scoops (+- 90 g) (chocolate or chocolate-coconut)
– 120 g oats
– 30 g hazel nuts crushed
– 2 teaspoon cocoa powder
– a bit of cinnamon
– 80 ml or g skimmed milk
– 60 g peanut butter (natural)
– A bit of coconut shavings

Directions:
– Put everything except the coconut shavings in a bowl
– mix thoroughly with your hands
– take some of the mix and make golf-ball size balls .. so you will have 12 balls
– roll the into coconut shaving
