  • 100g raspberries
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (or natural sweetener of your choice)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 100g porridge oats (use gluten free oats if preferred)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g pitted dates, chopped finely
  • 35g ground almonds
  • 40g chocolate or vanilla flavour whey or rice protein powder
  • 8 brazil nuts, finely chopped
  • 70ml unsweetened coconut milk
  • 60g shredded coconut

Directions

  • Pour the raspberries into a fine sieve and position over a large bowl.
  • Using the back of a wooden spoon, press the raspberries gently, extracting the raspberry juices into the bowl. Discard the raspberry seeds.
  • Add all of the other ingredients to the large bowl, except the desiccated coconut.
  • Mix thoroughly and refrigerate for at least an hour until the mixture firms up.
  • Divide the mixture into 9 portions and roll into balls using your hands. Pour the shredded coconut onto a plate and roll each ball in the coconut, to give them an even coating.
