It is not always easy looking for alternatives to replace your meals and find the right ingredients for recipes based around your intolerances. The good news is, that along with New Zealand, the rest of the world is waking up to the fact that food allergies and intolerances need to be taken seriously. 

Eating around food intolerances

There are plenty of people out there who are aware of what allergies and intolerances are and encourage healthy eating, but are there enough people providing allergen-friendly recipes? This is one of the most common issues that people with food intolerances face, alongside going out to eat and eating healthily. Check out this amazing recipe below to help you devise a healthy diet, but please be aware you may have to adapt your recipe around your food intolerances highlighted in your report.

What will you need?

Make sure you get 2 cups of Rolled Oats, and a 3/4 cup of Cashew Butter. Get your honey and measure out half a cup, before adding 2 tablespoons of Dark Cocoa Powder, and one teaspoon of mint extract! Following? Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Lastly, you will need to measure 1/2 cup of Dairy-Free Chocolate Chips. If you do suffer from any food intolerances to any of these items then make sure you replace them with a suitable alternative. Enjoy!

But how do you make it?

To start off, place all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and then stand the mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Make sure you mix the ingredients together until they are well combined to deliver great protein bowls. We do encourage that if mixing by hand is easier then please do, but make sure you mix the cashew butter and honey together first.

Next, wet your hands with water and pick up a golf ball size amount of dough. Roll in your hands to form a golf ball before tucking it into a plastic sealable bag. If your hands do become sticky, just wet them again and you will feel loads better!

Lastly, place the protein balls into the freezer and hold your hand for up to 3 months. Serve frozen, and leave out at room temperature.

Protein Ball Formula

You will need one base, one creamy ingredient, one sweetener, one flavour blast and make sure you mix it in.
