These home made Coconut and Macadamia Protein Balls are inspired two fold by my love for Ferrero Rocher’s Raffaello Chocolates and Bounce’s Protein Balls.

They taste amazingly similar to Raffaello Chocolates (only without the sugar and saturated fats) and unlike the Bounce version contain no stabilisers or agave, which is extremely high in fructose.

I’ll be serving these Protein Balls as an alternative to petite fours on Christmas day – a wonderfully guilt free way to finish off what will invariably be an indulgent Yuletide of food and drink.

Coconut and Macadamia Protein Balls make wonderfully healthy energy snacks, gifts or enjoyed as an alternative to petite fours.

Combine all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until thoroughly combined into a paste.


Blitz the ingredients into a thick paste - don't worry if the paste isn't smooth.


Take small batches of the mixture and shape into golf ball sized balls.

Roll the balls in desiccated coconut.

Refrigerate the Protein Balls and use as and when required. Or bundle a handful in some cellophane and give a healthy gift of food.
