Well as I expected I couldn't stop myself trying again with the homemade Nakd bars and I think I've got it sussed now! Here is my latest:
Cashew Chocolate Protein Bites:
Makes 6 small bites
- 20g Dates, Dried
- 20g Cashew Nuts, Plain
- 2 Apricots/20g Apricots, Dried
- ½ Scoop Whey Protein Powder, Chocolate
- 5g Cocoa Powder
- 3 tsps/15ml Water
Put 1 date, 1 apricot and a couple of cashews to one side and put everything else in a blender/food processor until finely chopped then add the items put to the side in for a quick blast to give you some fine/smooth pieces and a couple of larger chunks - consistency is much nicer this way!
I use a silicone mini muffin tray but you can just made little balls with your hands/teaspoons. The important thing it that the mixture is really tightly packed to stop it falling apart. they are ready to eat right away but I like to put them in the fridge for a few hours. They keep well in the fridge or in the cupboard.

Not the best photo, looks a bit shiny and weird and um...not the most appetising! But it really is lovely!
