Yields7 ServingsCategoryDessert

 1 can of kidney beans
 30 g vanilla protein powder
 30 g cocoa powder
 1 tsp baking powder
 2 tbsp granulated sweetener
 40 g coconut oil
Icing
 1 tbsp icing sugar
 sprinkles to decorate

1

Preheat your oven to 180C and lie a 20x20 baking tray/dish with parchment paper.

2

Drain the kidney beans & rinse well.

Add all the ingredients (bar the icing sugar & sprinkles) to a blender or food processor & blend to a smooth mixture.

3

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tray & bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Also to cool fully.

4

Once cooled, take a fork & mash up the baked mixture until it resembles crumbled up cake.

Then form into 21 equal mini balls & place in the fridge to firm up.

When the protein balls are firm, make the icing using the icing sugar & a tsp of water. Place a dollop on each & top with the sprinkles.

These could be made bigger for one large snack, but I prefer the little ones!
