These fudgy no bake chocolate protein truffles are such an EASY healthy snack recipe, with over 5 grams of protein each!

Protein Ball Recipe

A simple recipe for chocolate protein balls – it’s perfect for any time you’re craving chocolate and want to be healthy at the same time.

With just 3 ingredients and no sugar or flour required, the recipe gives you the choice to make them any flavor you wish. Naturally, I’m partial to the chocolate version.

These protein balls are great if you’re anything like me and often eat more carb-centered meals or snacks instead of sitting down to a traditional protein-centric meal.

They can be made with pretty much any protein powder, and since that ingredient is such an integral part of this recipe, do be sure to choose a brand and flavor that you already know you like.

I found that I prefer to use one that’s unsweetened, because the chocolate coating is already sweet. (Plus, this also allows you to avoid the artificial sweetener aftertaste present in so many brands.)

Dipping Chocolate Balls In Coating

To make the recipe, start by gently warming the nut butter (or sunbutter, coconut butter, etc.) until it’s easily stir-able.

Then use either a fork or food processor to stir in the protein powder and form a dough.

If it’s too wet, add more powder; if too dry, more nut butter or a little oil. Mine didn’t need either, but it may vary depending on the brands and specific ingredients you use.

Chocolate Protein Recipe

Roll the dough into balls or shapes, dip in melted chocolate, and place on a tray lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Either refrigerate or freeze to set the chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup protein powder (28g)
  • 2/3 cup nut butter of choice, or allergy friendly sub
  • 3 oz chocolate chips (I like to melt them with 4 tsp oil for a smoother sauce)

Instructions

  • *Feel free to use your favorite flavored or plain protein powder. I found that I prefer an unsweetened protein powder because the chocolate coating is sweet.
    To make the protein balls: If not yet soft, gently warm the nut butter until easily stir-able. Stir the protein powder and nut butter together to form a dough, either with a fork or food processor. If too wet, add a little more protein powder; if too dry, add a little oil. (Mine didn't need either, but it may vary by brand.) Roll into balls. Dip in the melted chocolate, then place on a tray lined with parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate or freeze to set.

    Fabulous idea! I would like to make the truffles but only have PB2 and a bag of peanut flour (the same thing). I also have almond flour. Do you think either of those would work in place of the protein powder? What brand did you use? Thanks a bunch 🙂

      We really like the one from Laird: https://amzn.to/3H1oPFn
      Katie has made the truffles many times, so we aren’t sure what nut butter was used for the ones in the photos but can say that the recipe is pretty versatile in working with many different types 🙂
