Choc Protein Balls

This is a super easy and tasty protein ball recipe that one of my PT friends shared with me a couple of years ago.
I have tweaked it a little to suit my tastes since then.
It’s one of those combinations that will hit the sweet spot, if you are looking for that hidden chocolate stash 😉

 

Choc Protein Balls

Ingredients

1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons peanut butter

60 grams almonds

2 scoops protein powder

1 cup rolled oats/quick oats

1 tablespoon honey/rice malt syrup

1 tablespoon milk to bind

Coconut for rolling (optional)

Method

Process the almonds into meal consistency in your Thermomix or food processor.

Throw all your other ingredients in and blend well.

Roll about a tablespoon of the mix into a ball and then roll in coconut if you choose (I don’t do this, only because I’m not a huge coconut fan) and then either freeze the balls or just pop in the fridge.

Notes 

  • If you haven’t got a food processor, you can still make these by hand.  I would suggest using quick oats and perhaps melting your honey and peanut butter to help bind everything together more easily and with a lot less elbow grease!
  • If you don’t like/can’t use almonds, you can replace the 60 grams with anything like coconut, or another nut or a mix of chia seeds as well.  The combinations are endless!
