I’ll be completely honest here.
I don’t really have a recipe or a method this time nor have I done these twice. There I was at home craving something but I didn’t know what. I just combined a couple of staple ingredients I had at hand, blended until desired consistency and that’s how these Protein Balls were born. But, oh gosh, you are delicious.
I remember the day I started I wasn’t too sure if I’m wanted like a chocolaty flavour or not. Thus, I made two different ones. As I’m typing this I’m recalling the steps of that day so I do apologise in advance if maybe quantity wise doesn’t add up. However, you know we’re after a bliss balls and by now it’s quite easy to reach that dough-consistency with a few tricks.
Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls
1/2 cup almond meal
2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp cacao butter, melted (if you don’t have you can use coconut oil)
1 tsp maca
2 tbsp vanilla protein powder ( I use Bareblends)
Cacao nibs as many as you want
pinch of Himalayan salt
*You could add a couple of teaspoons of rice malt syrup but see how you go for flavour. I find mine sweet enough with the protein.
Blend or combine all the above ingredients together until a firm dough is reached.
Ingredients for Salted Caramel Chocolate Protein Balls
Use the same ingredients listed above and add 1 tbsp raw cacao powder. As simple as that. If you don’t have almond meal, try using different blends like any seed meal. I hope you enjoy making this Protein ball the same way I enjoyed remember the steps.
