P1130078 Every time I look at these Coconut Kiss Protein Balls, I think of donuts. Is that weird?! I must have donuts on the brain this week, because my husband bought a box of donuts from the massively popular Aungier Danger for his staff in work a couple of days ago, and he’s been banging on about how delicious they were ever since. I might have to try a sneaky little bit of one sometime soon… shhh! šŸ˜‰

P1130093 Luckily, these four-ingredient beauts are considerably less naughty than donuts (though probably not as fun) and take all of five minutes to make. Yesss!

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may have spotted that I’m a big fan of coconut in all of its glorious forms. I keep a tub in my bathroom to use on my hair and as a body lotion – plus it works well as a make-up remover if you’re stuck for cleanser. I love to drink coconut water for rehydration after exercise, and both coconut milk and dried coconut pop up in plenty of my recipes. 

P1130094 For this recipe, I simply mixed chilled coconut cream with desiccated coconut, Sunwarrior protein and a touch of vanilla extract to create a slightly sticky dough, which I then rolled into golfball-size balls to enjoy in a ladylike fashion or stuff into your gob all in one go… I tend to do the latter šŸ™‚

They’re low in carbs and calories, filling, unprocessed and free from sugar. Plus they make a brilliant portable snack or lunchbox addition. Who needs donuts anyway!
