5 healthy chocolate recipes

Dark choc raspberry bliss balls

This new recipe from our Protein Balance Power meal plan has quickly become a member favourite, and it’s easy to see why. The recipe doesn’t take long to make, the ingredients list is short and you can make 36 of them in one go to keep for up to 10 days! Three balls is a serving, so if you prefer not to share (we get it!) they also freeze well, making them an even sweeter addition to your fortnightly shopping list.

Dark choc and date loaf

This loaf is a great recipe to make when you have company, or even just to enjoy on your own with a hot cuppa. The dark chocolate offers a nice balance to the sweetness from the dates, bananas, maple syrup and apple puree. If you’re able to resist finishing the whole loaf in one week, you can freeze individual slices for up to three months – just thaw in the fridge overnight and toast to warm before serving.
