Over the long weekend, like most people I pigged out and ate too many naughty treats. So on Monday, I decided to be good and make some yummy yet healthy treats to take to the Footy (Go Dees!) and to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday!

I used our clinic owner, Nat’s trusty recipe for Chocolatey Amazeballs (from her first book, Eat Fat, Be Thin)! Sadly we missed out on a photo-op, which I was planning on when at the game. But the balls disappeared before I could even try to get that perfect angle for insta! You can check out the recipe (and many more like these) on her website but because I’m all about making your life easier, I’ve also attached the recipe below. They are so yummy and easy to make. I used The Health Lab chocolate protein powder we are currently selling in the clinic, which made them even more chocolatey and delicious.

Now, I know we all feel guilty when we slip off the health food train and we stress ourselves out about getting it back together and eating healthy again, but just remember it’s normal and it’s more than ok to let ourselves indulge a little and eat the “occasional” foods when the time comes. It’s so important not to punish or be hard on ourselves, but instead enjoy those treats when we have them!

Enjoy some Balls!! (They won’t disappoint!)



  • 1.5 cups almonds
  • 1 cup medjool dates (seeds removed)
  • 1/2 cup cacao butter
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 cup protein powder.
  • 3 tbsp. cacao
  • 1 tbsp. chia seed


Simply whiz all ingredients together in a food processor until well processed and mixed together. You want it to be a nice consistency that you can roll together and make small balls. If it needs more moisture, simply add a tablespoon of water until it is the right consistency.

Makes approximately 20
