Suitable to eat when you have these side-effects:

Makes: approx. 17 balls

Prep time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • ¼ cup rice malt syrup
  • 2 tablespoons protein powder
  • 1 ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup frozen fruit, chopped (I used frozen cherries)

Method

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor bowl, use a non-cutting blade if you have one but it is not necessary if you don’t. Pulse until all the ingredients have combined and have formed a large ball. If you don’t have a food processor, mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon until combined. It may help to warm the peanut butter and rice malt syrup first.
  • Roll small amounts of mixture into balls between the palms of your hands. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer until required.

For sore mouth, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth & throat: Take two energy balls and place into a blender with 250mL of any milk. Blend until smooth and enjoy as a drink.

For salty taste changes: Use an unsalted nut butter.

For sweet taste changes: Leave out the rice malt syrup and fruit. Replace with a splash of water when blending if needed. Alternatively, try frozen cranberries as a fruit replacement as they are tart tasting.
