MissFits Nutrition were kind enough to send me samples of they’re protein to use in my baking and post workout. I gave up dairy last year and lived of vegan protein such as hemp, pea protein which quite frankly were disgusting! So I reverted back to good old whey protein. Honestly, I don’t know how they’ve done it but MisFits Nutrition pea protein is so tasty, it actually mixes with water and milk, unlike all the others I’ve tried.
In this recipe I used the berry protein, however they have some amazing other flavours including vanilla, chocolate and coffee! Check out their full range at missfitsnutrition.com
I’m a big fan of raw balls, so simple to make and you don’t need a lot of ingredients. These taste like turkish delights! Plus, you know these are good when your mother, who hates anything remotely healthy asks you to keep her a few to eat..I’d say that’s a success.

- 1/2 cup of almonds

- 1 sachet of MissFits Nutrition berry protein
- 1 Large dark chocolate bar

- Handful of frozen raspberries
- In a food processor add the dates, nuts and chia seeds and mix together until the dates have broken down. Ensure you scrape down the side to combine all of the mixture.
- Add the protein and mix all ingredients on a high speed until the mixture is combined, but still sticky.
- With a teaspoon spoon out enough mixture to fill the spoon and roll into a ball.
- Place to balls onto a plate and into the fridge to harden.
- Fill a saucepan with water and place on a simmering heat.
- In a heat proof bowl, break up the chocolate bar into pieces and add the coconut oil.
- Place over the simmering water and stir until the chocolate has completely melted.
- Break up the frozen raspberries into small pieces.
- Once the chocolate has cooled slightly, dip each raw ball into the chocolate, then add the frozen raspberries on top. Continue this until all raw balls have been covered.
