Servings 24


  • 2 cups almond meal (ground almonds)
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 2/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 24 raspberries (fresh or frozen)

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Extra desiccated coconut for rolling


  • Combine almond meal, protein powder and coconut in a large bowl. Add vanilla extract, honey and water and mix to form a dough. Add extra water if the mixture is not coming together.
    Take around a tablespoon of the mixture (enough for one ball) and use your finger to create an indent so that you can press in a raspberry. Use your fingers to shape the ball around the raspberry with the mixture. Repeat for remaining balls. Place balls on a baking tray and put in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Chocolate Coating

  • Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in small dish and microwave with 30 second bursts stirring between each one until melted and smooth.
    Or use double boiler method - (pot of boiling water with a bowl resting on top) melt the chocolate chips and the coconut oil together.
    Pour coconut into a shallow dish ready to roll the balls in.
    Remove snack balls from fridge, and after checking they are firm and set skewer each ball, or use 2 forks to hold each one, or a fork holding them underneath, dip into the melted chocolate. Then roll each ball in coconut and place on a rack to dry.
    Keep refrigerated.
    Store snack balls in fridge for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
