No Bake Chocolate Protein Balls – Protein Treats by Nutracelle
Chocolate Protein Balls With Protein Powder: Easy No-Bake Recipe
Protein balls are such an easy-to-make and convenient high-protein snack. If you follow this recipe, each ball should contain 19g of high quality protein. A no-bake method is used, which is super handy and more time efficient. Also, since no heat is involved, this may also reduce any possible damage to the added protein.
These little snacks can be made in advance, and in bulk, and simply stored within a freezer until required. They can be eaten as they are, or combined with various nutritious toppings. I always seem to have coconut or nuts in the cupboard, so I’d often use these as toppings. I guess you can be as adventurous as you wish, just try to keep it healthy.
This part is totally optional, but since I am a fan of health supplements and superfoods in general, I decided to add acai powder to this recipe. Again, this is optional! Acai is so versatile and you can literally add it to anything. In Brazil, the homeland of acai, they use it in both sweet and savoury recipes. From what I hear, the savoury recipes are more common up north and they combine them with beans. They are a little bean crazy in Brazil btw and will combine anything with beans.
If you cannot source acai, then you could also try wheatgrass powder as a nutritional additive. Again, this is totally optional and not required, but it could be a good option if you wish to make a more well-rounded and nutritious snack. Wheatgrass contains many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and also a small amount of protein. Apparently, wheatgrass contains more vitamins and minerals (weight per weight) than other green leafy veg or salad. Now I will say this, it does taste a little like a cross between green tea and freshly cut grass, so if you do not like this type of flavour, then do not add it to the recipe.
The recipe discussed below, is for chocolate protein balls, but if you are not a fan of chocolate, no problem, you could easily adapt this recipe to make peanut butter protein balls (or protein bars). To do this, just leave out the cocoa powder, use an unflavored or vanilla protein powder and, to the mixture, add a little more peanut butter (around 1/3 cup extra).
These chocolate protein balls are good to keep refrigerated for a few days, although for longer term storage and convenience I would recommend to freeze them. Simply let defrost for approximately 10 minutes before consumption and bob’s your uncle!
