Hey guys! Here is another protein ball recipe to complement last week’s Raw Cashew and Coconut recipe. Inspired by the lovely Tina from Bite Me Show Me, I tweaked this recipe to suit what ingredients I had in the cupboard. The rich chocolate and peanut butter flavour makes this a decadent-tasting ball, but they are still only 123 calories each!

Author:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 10-12 dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup oats
Instructions
  1. Add ingredients into food processor and blitz until combined.
  2. If the mixture still remains crumbly, add a teaspoon of water at a time until it comes together.
  3. For easy portioning, use an icecream scoop to create 6 large balls, then halve each and roll into 12 little balls.
  4. I store mine in zip locks bags in groups of 4, putting half in the freezer and keeping half in the fridge.

I have a stash of these at home and at work, they are perfect for a snack and are a more sensible choice than a chocolate bar or packet of crisps. I’m thinking of adding coffee powder to them next time for an extra boost before a workout.

      I just use normal dates from a packet I buy in Coles… I am not sure what type they are specifically sorry!!

    Sorry guys – new to this – but will a blender work in place of a food processor for this particular recipe?

    • Swah says

      I have actually made my last 2 batches of protein balls in the blender as I don’t have a food processor at the moment. It’s a little more difficult (the blade is smaller, and sometimes ingredients get stuck in the bottom) but it definitely works! :)
