PB & Cocoa Protein Balls

London has been taken over by Deliciously Ella’s raw energy bites – and people love them.
I wanted to give you guys a really easy recipe that’s still yummy but uses raw, refined-free sugar alternatives with a protein punch.

This recipe only needs a mix of ingredients in a bowl and the best part is –  you can have them baked or no-bake! They double up as cookies too!

For those of you heading down for one of our Pilates class, these PB & Cocoa Balls are the perfect snack in between classes or as a healthier treat snack at work.
