First Attempt at Protein Balls

protein balls
Warning; I am going to be saying 'balls' a lot in this post, so please refrain from giggling, I am being serious people.

I've been trying to get back to the gym recently, and I've been seeing recipes for protein balls everywhere, so I decided to give one a go. I found a really simple recipe which I tweaked slightly, and luckily I had all of the ingredients. They turned out pretty good

Each ball has just over 8 grams of protein in it, which makes them perfect for eating on the go just before or after a work out.

This recipe below should make 8 protein balls.

4 tablespoons natural peanut butter
2 scoops (50g) vanilla protein powder
4 tablespoons coconut milk
Sesame seeds
50g dark chocolate

Mix the peanut butter, protein powder, coconut milk and sesame seeds in a bowl. Once mixed it should form a dough like consistency. I rolled mine out into a snake shape so that I could split the mixture evenly up into 8, then I rolled them into small balls.

Heat the chocolate in a pyrex dish over a pan of boiling water. Once melted dip each of your protein balls in and coat with the chocolate. Place on a plate and pop in the fridge until cool. Et voila! They are done!

It was such an easy recipe, I'll definitely be using this as a base to try out lots of different variations! Have you got a good recipe for protein balls you'd like to share?

  1. These look really nice. I think I'd roll them in coconut too for a little added extra!

  2. I think you've accidentally duplicated protein powder in the recipe instead of sesame seeds. These do sound rather delicious but, seeing as how I literally never ever EVER exercise, eating a ball of fatty protein is probably a very bad idea for me :p xxx

    1. Well spotted! I also wrote 'protein ball tripe' on my instagram instead of 'recipe', which didn't sound very appetising. so it's not going well for me at the moment, haha!

  3. I@m really going to have to teach myself to like peanut butter, aren't I?
