Maple Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Balls

Hello everyone! I hope you don’t mind me keeping things short and super sweet today. This post is part of my birthday cake post (which involves these little balls of heaven as topping, yum!), but I thought I would write it in a separate post just in case someone was looking for a protein ball recipe you know!

I have to say, I’m not usually a protein-anything person. I hardly ever add protein powder to my smoothies, I don’t buy protein bars and I basically don’t go out of my way to calculate every gram of protein I eat to make sure it’s enough. Me? With the amount of rice and beans I eat, I should be more concerned about dying from a protein overdose than lacking any hahaha.

Learn how to make your own protein balls with little ingredients. No blender required and these are vegan too!

For real now: you cannot die from a protein overdose from eating too many beans, so fear not and bring on all the Mexican bowls! However, too much protein can be (and is!!!) a problem, so make sure you don’t overdose on the bars/balls/powders and stuff. Like, yeah mate, I know these balls are AWESOME, but that doesn’t mean it’s healthy to eat the whole batch in a sitting.


Sure, they are a much healthier option than anything which is derived from animals and artificially made. And they make a lovely, filling snack which you can take anywhere indeed. So if you’re here to look for a protein-rich treat to have after the gym and such, you’re going to love these! (and how easy to make they are!)

Just make sure you don’t pop ’em like pills! Moderation is the key, you know.

    I actually like the taste of some protein powders! Yes, some taste like dirt but others like Vega and PlantFusion are FABULOUS. Depending on what protein powder I use, I’d pop these bad boys in like crazy!

    Can the protein be replaced for another ingredient?

      I really don’t think so, sorry! Nothing has the same texture 🙁 There are a lot of protein powder free recipes on the net though! xxx
