Vegan Protein Balls

These Vegan Protein Balls are packed with chocolate and good for you ingredients. They taste like a treat, but really have lots of plant based protein and healthy ingredients.

I like to top the recipe for protein balls with hemp seeds. It adds a nice crunch to the top and almost reminds me of Almond Roca candies!

I added 4 scoops of plant based protein powder to this recipe, but you could skip it if you’re not a protein powder fan!

Ingredients for Protein Balls

If you don’t have old fashioned oats, instant oatmeal will work as well.

I like to use almond butter in this recipe, but both peanut butter and cashew butter works well. And though I have not tried it yet with seed butters, I have no doubt that they will work great too. If you make this with seed butter, please comment and lets us all know how it came out.

How to Make Protein Balls Recipes

If you don’t have (or don’t want to use) a food processor you can skip that step all together.

Simply add all of the ingredients to a large bowl and mix well. Then roll up and chill. They will have a slightly different consistency, but I really like it. Many people like a chunkier protein ball anyway.

Chocolate Hemp Seed Protein Balls

Audrey Johns
These vegan protein balls are packed with protein and so easy to make!
I like hold some of the chocolate chips back and fold them into the batter after processing. This gives the power balls a bit if crunch.
Special Tip: You can skip the protein powder if you are not a fan of it.
