Chocolate Coffee Protein Balls

Chocolate Coffee Protein Balls

Yes you heard that right! This is a marriage made in heaven for a super healthy pick me up with your favourite speciality coffee ☕️ 

These protein balls are low in sugar and have a lovely chewy fudgy texture to give you a great boost of caffeine before or after a workout. Super simple to make and will keep for 5 days in the fridge in a sealed container.


You will need:

Makes 8 protein balls

  • 60g oats
  • 30g chocolate flavoured protein (you can use any inc. vegan)
  • 1 double shot of espresso (I used Mara coffee of course!) 
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp almond butter (or any nut butter you fancy!)
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao

 

How to make:

  • Add all of the dry ingredients to a food processor and mix for 20 seconds 
  • Add in your wet ingredients and mix again until well combined - you will have a super sticky dark dough at this point 
  • Take the dough from the food processor and shape with your hands into 1 large ball. Split this ball in 2 evenly and continue doing so until you have 8 mini dough balls
  • Shape each little ball until nice and round and then chill in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight
  • Optional - for an extra protein hit roll your protein balls in chopped hazelnuts or almonds.

 

Once chilled enjoy with a coffee before a 🏋️‍♂️ or as a healthy snack
