Taming that sweet tooth can be difficult when you're trying to lose weight, because apparently a family-sized sharing bar of Dairy Milk isn't a snack conducive to reaching a healthy weight  (who knew?!).

Luckily the bods at Ultimate Performance kept this in mind when putting together their newest cookbook and have included a recipe for indulgent coconut and chocolate protein bites, which they've kindly sent us to share with you. Buy the cookbook, which includes this and 190 more recipes, on Amazon here.
