"Raffaello" Protein Bites | Vegan


Making your own protein bites at home is so much easier (and so much cheaper) than buying them from any supermarket or health store. I make these all the time and have come up with so many different flavour combinations and this flavour has got to be one of my favourites! 

As I have now been vegan for over six years, it obviously means I no longer enjoy Raffaello chocolate, so I thought why not put my own spin on the flavour! these are by no means meant to be a replica of the chocolate, but more like a healthy alternative with some flavour inspiration from them. 

Vegan white chocolate is my favourite and I always get mine from Moo Free Chocolates!


You will need:

- 1 cup of oats
- 3 tbsp vegan protein powder (I love Tropkea cookie dough protein or Unicorn Superfoods vanilla cake protein)
- 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter (or other nut butter)
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 bar of dairy-free white chocolate, melted 
- coconut shreds for coating


1. In a large bowl, combine the oats and protein powder.
2. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 20 seconds and pour it into the mixing bowl.
3. Add the peanut butter (or any other nut butter) and maple syrup and stir until combined. The mixture should be sticky and easily mouldable.
4. Roll the mixture into 8 balls.
5. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl in the microwave (I do mine in 20-second bursts until smooth) and once melted, roll the protein balls in the chocolate until fully coated.
6. Sprinkle the shredded coconut on top of each protein ball.
7. Place them on a plate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours so the chocolate sets.
