Zesty apricot and orange protein ball snack

Have you jumped on to the protein band wagon? Upping your intake with shop bough protein bars?

Whilst you may be congratulating yourself for your healthy efforts, how about starting to make your own!

easy to make protein balls 

Protein bars sounds like they are going to be time consuming and difficult to make, but they are actually one the easiest snacks to prepare, plus you can make them in bulk, freeze them and you can control the flavour!

I have been dabbling in making my own protein bars for a few months now and one recipe I have made is these deliciously zesty apricot and orange protein balls!

chop up the dried apricots as small as possible 

To make these tasty protein snacks you will need:

1/3 cup of coconut oil (solid)
¼ cup natural honey
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
3 tablespoons of chia seeds
The zest of one large orange
Squeeze of orange juice (use this to moisten the mixture)
½ cup of chopped dried apricots (add more or less depending on flavour)

(makes 8-9) 

simply pop in a bowl and mix 

Simply combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well, making sure all the ingredients are well combined.

Roll the mixture up into little balls, about a spoonful each.

Pop onto a plate and into the fridge for a few hours until they harden up a little.
