Ferrero Rocher’ Protein Balls

Ferrero Rocher’s – Remember those gold wrapped decadent little treats that always seemed to appear at Christmas? Well here is how you can make your own with 5x the protein and are not made of 40% sugar!

This particular uses casein protein powder, however you can sub with whey if that’s what you have, just add the greek youghurt gradually as you might not need as much – the casein is a lot more absorbent.

Ingredients

40g roasted hazelnuts
10g (4tbsp) cocoa powder
10g (1/3 scoop) chocolate casein
35g (2tbsp) 0% greek yoghurt
1 tbsp. (3g) coconut flour
2 tbsp. truvia (to taste)
4 squares Free’ist dark chocolate, melted
2 tbsp. (14g) chopped, roasted hazelnuts

Method

1 – In a small food processor, blitz all but 5 of the 40g of roasted hazelnuts until ground (should be 30g)
2 – Add the remaining ingredients except the chocolate and remaining hazelnuts. Blitz until it forms a dough.
3 – Roll into 5 balls. Divide each ball in two, and mould the whole hazelnut around it, rolling it into a ball.
4 – Coat in the melted Free’ist dark chocolate, then roll in the chopped hazelnuts.

If making in advance, wrap cling film and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Tip: to cut back on the calories, and lower fat content, omit the hazelnut from the centre, and half the chopped hazelnuts from the coating.
