Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Balls

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!

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.
