  • 60g nuts - I used cashew
  • 50g oats
  • 3 tbsp cashew butter
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Handful raisins
  • 20g vegan vanilla protein powder
  • Pinch salt
  • Handful of chopped Montezuma Organic 73% Cocoa Very Dark Chocolate Bar
Prep Time


  1. Combine the oats and nuts in your Ninja Kitchen food processor and blitz until slightly crushed.

  2. Add in the cashew butter, honey, coconut flour, raisins, protein and spices and blend again until everything is well combined and can be rolled into balls.

  3. Stir through the dark chocolate so that it’s evenly distributed and roll the mixture into energy bites.

  4. Pop these into the fridge for an hour to chill.

  5. Decorate with a drizzle of melted chocolate or simply leave them plain and enjoy!

Cooking and being in the kitchen was always something that I loved, after always helping and watching my mum cook as a child. Fitness is a huge part of my life, so making sure that I fuel my body with healthy, nourishing foods goes hand in hand with that. I started to create healthy alternatives to my favourite dishes and loved sharing my photos and recipes on social media just as a hobby. After a while I decided to set up my blog, which was my place to really get creative and write and share whatever I wanted.
