Want a post workout high protein snack that’s easy quick to make and tastes amazing? Give this recipe a try!
Ingredients (makes 25-30 balls):
1 cup vanilla protein powder (link to the plant based one I used below)
1/4 cup almond flour
2 heaped tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder (link below)
2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter (link to the natural peanut butter I used below)
about 16 tablespoons milk of choice (I used oat milk)
2 tablespoons chocolate chips (link to the sugar free ones I used below)
Mix the dry ingredients (protein powder, almond flour & cacao powder) together in a bowl.
Then, add the peanut butter and mix with the dry ingredients using a spoon.
Once the peanut butter is mixed in, slowly add the milk tablespoon by tablespoon. Mix everything together from time to time to give you an idea of the consistency. Stop adding milk once you’ve achieve your desired consistency, which should be lightly sticky so that you can shape the dough into balls, but not too wet. Knead the dough for a little bit using your hands to make sure everything is mixed well.
Then, add in the chocolate chips and knead them into the dough using your hands. Once the chocolate chips are distributed evenly throughout the dough, shape it into balls of your preferred size.
Store your protein balls in the fridge on a tray or in a container lined with parchment paper to prevent sticking.
I hope you’ll enjoy them!
