Cherry Bakewell Truffles

SERVING: Makes 12 truffles


·         200g Medjool dates
·         200g almonds
·         100g dried sour Morello cherries
·         50g Forever Lite Ultra Chocolate
·         50g raisins
·         ¾ tsp French almond extract
·         50g chocolate (90% cacao)
·         Coconut dusting (optional)


Add all of the ingredients, apart from the chocolate and ten cherries, into a food processor and blitz for a few minutes until they come together to form a large ball. Divide the mixture into equal size pieces and roll into smaller balls. Chop the ten extra cherries in half. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie and, using two spoons, carefully coat each ball with a thin layer of chocolate before placing on a tray lined with baking paper – the truffles will not stick to this once set. Place half a cherry on each truffle and then place the truffles in the fridge to set for an hour. 

Cookie Dough Balls

SERVING: 12 bites


·         1 ½ cups rolled oats
·         1 cup natural peanut butter
·         ¼ cup of Forever Bee Honey
·         2 scoops Forever Lite Ultra Chocolate
·         2tbsp chocolate chips


All you need to do is place the oats, peanut butter, Forever Bee HoneyForever Lite Ultra and chocolate chips into a large bowl and stir to combine. Once you’ve combined the mixture, use a spoon to scoop out similar sizes of the mixture. Use your hands to roll them into a nice ball shape and lay them into a container. They’re fine to eat like this, or if you want them a little firmer you can pop them in the fridge before you eat them. 


Peanut Butter Bites

SERVING: 30 bites


·         320ml skimmed milk
·         340g peanut butter
·         4 tsp Forever Bee Honey
·         180g Forever Lite Ultra Chocolate
·         180g dry rolled oats 


Combine the peanut butter, Forever Bee Honey and milk in a bowl. Warm the bowl over a low heat. Add the Forever Lite Ultra and mix well. Add in the oats but make sure you do not cook it, just warm it through so you can stir it. Add more milk if it is too thick to stir. Press the mixture into a 9”x13” pan. Let the tin sit until cool and cut into equal sized bites. Wrap each bite in foil and store in a plastic tub. They do not need refrigeration and are the perfect post-workout treat!
