Ok ok….so I am a huge fan of whole food and believe I should really just have a nice wholesome piece of protein with a suitably dressed veggie…but sometimes (quite often really) I know I am going to be out and about not sitting down when it comes to meal times. In this circumstance I have go to meals that I prepare on Sunday afternoons and bundle them up in portions ready for the week ahead. The key here is simplicity and ease; beautiful bundles that have limited carbs and sugars with maximum protein hit. Think of these as your go to protein bar sans soy fillers and questionable alcohol sugars.
½ cup macadamia nuts, soaked overnight to soften
1 ½ cups of coconut (organic prefereably…or one without sulphites)
¼ cup unflavoured whey protein powder
4 tbs of chia seeds (preferably soaked overnight)
4 tbs of green powder
½ cup water
½ coconut oil melted (or your desired fat;-)
½ tsp of liquid stevia
Process the nuts, coconut, green powder, and protein powder until you have a gummy powder consistency. Add the soaked chia seeds, drained of any excess water, water and coconut oil until combined. Press the mixture into a small pan and refrigerate. That’s it!
When you remove them cut them into portions or roll into balls.
Out of the fridge these babies are dense. Once I wrap them up in baking paper for work, they tend to go gooey…. which is also delightful!
Note: If you want to create a chocolate element to this dish…simply ad ¼ cup of Cacao powder and eyeball a little more liquid.
