Whip up a batch (or two) of these to keep in the fridge incase you have a busy week ahead! The recipe can be doubled or tripled etc according to how many you’d like to make. I tried to keep the calories low respective to the protein in this recipe, because many protein ball recipes call for dates, honey and lots of nuts/coconut, all of which add HEAPS of calories into the fats and carbs, negating them being called ‘protein balls’ anyway.


Ingredients

  • 1 tsp (about 5g) coconut oil

  • 35g (1.2oz) peanut butter

  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

  • 50mL (1.7oz) almond milk

  • Pinch of salt

  • ½ tsp Natvia (or erythritol, or stevia)

  • 25g (0.88oz) protein powder (preferably vanilla)

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • 55g (2oz) rolled oats

  • 10g (0.3oz) cacao nibs

Method

  1. Take coconut oil, peanut butter, and vanilla extract, combine in a bowl and melt in the microwave for around 30 secs to make stirring easier.

  2. Add almond milk, salt, and Natvia, stir well.

  3. Now add protein powder (I used Elite Whey in Vanilla), rolled oats and cacao nibs and stir until mixture is combined well.

  4. Place mixing bowl in the fridge for 30 mins

  5. Remove bowl from the fridge and line a baking tray or plate with a piece of baking paper.

  6. Roll the mixture into 1” balls and spread across the tray with gaps in between.

  7. Place back in the fridge for another hour prior to serving.

  8. Keep stored in the fridge or freezer.
