A great pre-workout snack

Blending mixed nuts, coconut and buckinis to provide a high energy snack loaded with healthy fats and protein.

The inclusion of the chocolate protein drizzle provides that extra protein kick and a whole bunch of extra flavour!

Make a batch of these to have throughout the week when you need a quick energy boost.
