What do you do when you’re craving something sweet but you don’t want to wreck all the hard work you’ve been doing on eating healthy?
You make Chocolate Protein Balls!
Besides tasting like a peanut butter cup and only taking 10 minutes to whip up – These treats can be eaten as dessert, breakfast, or a post-workout snack!
Plus, you don’t have to cook or bake a thing to make them. You just throw some ingredients in a blender, shape them into balls, and then put them in the fridge to firm up.
***These ONLY work with the Chocolate Protein Powder I use and recommend! (believe me – not all Chocolate Protein Powders taste this good! I’ve tried and tested many of them.)*** This delicious plant based protein power is clean – no artificial colors or preservatives. It’s dairy/gluten/soy free and it is vegan. As I say – all of the YUM none of the YUCK!
Seriously easy to make and filled with real ingredients. You’re going to love them!
CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN BALLS
Makes 10-12 Servings
1 cup (12 large) medjool dates-Pitted
1/3 cup Life’s Abundance Chocolate Protein Powder
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons natural peanut butter (peanuts and salt – NO ADDED SUGAR!!)
2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened almond or coconut milk
*optional – add some dairy free mini chocolate chips or chopped up pecans.
1. Add dates to a food processor or high-speed blender and process until they are broken down and form a large ball.
2. Add remaining ingredients and continue processing until a dough forms, scraping down the sides as needed. The dough should stick together easily but not be overly sticky to the touch.
3. Use a tablespoon to scoop dough and roll each portion into 1-inch balls. Coat as desired with cocoa powder, unsweetened coconut flakes, or finely crushed almonds.
4. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to a week.
WHY THIS RECIPE ROCKS MY FACE: Great source of protein, contain the flavanol powers of chocolate and a dose of healthy fats from coconut oil and peanut butter. It’s Dairy Free. They taste AMAZING. No Guilt. All Love.
