Macadamia Protein Bites are a combination of all the good fats which get the tick of approval in a Dr Ray Peat style diet.
These days I cut the pieces up a little smaller as I keep to only 40g of fat a day and that seems to keep my weight in check.
So in the interests of super delicious and satisfying, here is another recipe for your repertoire:-
Macadamia Protein Bites
½ cup vanilla protein powder
½ cup macadamia nuts
2 TBS honey
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup cacao butter
1 TBS honey
1 TBS peanut powder
Whizz the nuts in a food processor until all stuck together. Throw in the rest of the base ingredients and keep whizzing until one sticky ball.
Press into a tin lined with baking paper and chill in fridge.
For the topping, melt cacao butter in a double boiler over low heat. Add the honey and peanut powder, mixing until smooth. Drizzle over the top of the base and keep in the fridge.
Happy healthy cooking!
2020 Update: I don’t eat as much protein powder as I used to however if you are going to use it, the best one to get is Casein.
