Chocolate PB Protein Balls (No Bake)

It has taken me a while to get back in the swing of things since preaseason training ended and school and traveling for volleyball started. I have done some baking and cooking since, but have been terrible about keeping up and posting everything, so I am working on changing that now that I am back in some sort of a (crazy) everyday routine. I will have to play catch-up for a little while, but hopefully will get on top of things again! It is my friend's birthday today, so this is the result of me deciding to make her a present:


Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls (No Bake)
Makes about 30 balls

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup Cacao Powder (no sugar added)
  • 1/4 cup Hemp seeds (or other finely chopped nuts)
  • 1/2 cup all-natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 scoop chocolate-peanut butter protein powder (or similar flavor)
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
Directions:
Knead all ingredients well until you get one uniform lump of dough. Pinch off pieces of dough and roll into balls about 1/2 to 3/4 inch in diameter. Set balls on a plate and stick in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or until ready to eat. The other option is of course to eat them right away, because they are delicious no matter what. Another optional touch is to additionally roll each ball in cacao powder, making the balls nice and truffle-looking.


That's it! It's quick and easy, and the most time-consuming part of the recipe is rolling the dough out into balls...but if you're strapped for time, you could easily make these into bars as well. And if you're not, you could kill time and make the dough into fun animal shapes ;)

Enjoy!
