Ready to energise yourself this January with a super-easy, protein-rich treat?
Whether you’re locking into Veganuary, searching for your new post-gym protein source, or simply a delicious snack on the go - we recommend you try this one!
- 250g rolled oats
- 120g vegan chocolate protein powder
- 120g smooth peanut butter
- 60ml maple syrup or agave nectar
- 60ml almond milk (or any plant-based milk)
- 60g ground flaxseeds
- 60g chopped dark chocolate (vegan)
- 5ml vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- Optional: Shredded coconut or crushed nuts for coating
Combine Dry Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl, combine rolled oats, vegan chocolate protein powder, and ground flaxseeds. Mix well to ensure even distribution.
Add Wet Ingredients
Add the smooth peanut butter, maple syrup (or agave nectar), almond milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt to the dry ingredients. Mix until the mixture starts to come together.
Incorporate Chopped Chocolate
Fold in the chopped dark chocolate into the mixture. This will add extra bursts of chocolate flavour to your protein balls.
If the mixture seems too dry, you can add a little more almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you achieve a sticky consistency that holds together well.
Shape into Balls
Take small portions of the mixture and roll them between your hands to form bite-sized balls. If desired, roll each ball in shredded coconut or crushed nuts for extra texture.
Place the formed balls on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow them to firm up.
Once chilled, your Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls are ready to be enjoyed! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Feel free to customise this recipe by adding ingredients like chia seeds, hemp seeds, or your favourite nuts for added crunch and nutritional benefits. Enjoy these protein-packed treats as a snack or a quick energy boost before or after your workouts!
