These protein balls are great if you’re like me and often eat more carb-focused meals or snacks than sit down to a traditional protein-focused meal.
They can be made with pretty much any protein powder, and since this ingredient is an integral part of this recipe, be sure to choose a brand and flavor you already know.
I’ve found that I prefer using an unsweetened one, because the chocolate coating is really sweet. (Plus, this also allows you to avoid the late taste of the artificial sweetener found in many brands.)
To prepare the recipe, start by gently heating the nut butter (or sun butter, coconut butter, etc.) so that it can be moved easily.
Then use either a fork or a food processor to stir in the protein powder and form a paste.
If it is too wet, add more powder; If it is too dry, use nut butter or a little oil. I didn’t need either, but it may vary depending on the specific brands and ingredients you use.
Roll the dough into balls or shapes, dip in melted chocolate, and place on a tray lined with wax or parchment paper. Either chill or freeze to set the chocolate.

The recipe is inspired by these Chocolate truffles.
- 1/2 cup protein powder (28 grams)
- 2/3 cup favorite nut butter, or sub-sensitivity
- 3 ounce chocolate chips (I like to melt it with 4 teaspoons oil for a softer sauce)
* Feel free to use your regular protein powder or your favorite flavor. I’ve found that I prefer the unsweetened protein powder because the chocolate coating is sweet.To make the protein balls: If they are not soft yet, warm the nut butter gently until they are easy to stir. Stir the protein powder and nut butter together to form a paste, either using a fork or a food processor. If it is too wet, add a little protein powder; If it is too dry, add a little oil. (Mine didn’t need either, but it may vary by brand). Dip in melted chocolate, then place on a tray lined with parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate or freeze to set.View Nutrition Facts
