I have such a treat for you guys today! I have been making these protein balls forever! They’re always a hit, and people are constantly asking for the recipe. I played around with it a bit in the last few months since we’ve gone paleo, and I think I finally perfected it! I’m so excited to share it today.
Finding something that tastes good and is also good for you can be so hard. I’m really picky, and it’s not often that I actually enjoy and feel satisfied by something that is clean. Eating clean is a big sacrifice for me, because I feel sometimes it means giving up good tastes and flavors. Since I’m so picky, I tend to stick with things that are more bland in the first place. And then to add in eating clean can make eating kind of dull. So, I try to create my own recipes whenever I can and play with flavors!
Life gets crazy and sometimes I need a pick me up. But I want that pick me up to be sweet, I also want it to be good for me. But, it still has to taste good. I want it to give me energy, and I don’t want to spend a ton of time making it, nor do I want to do a ton of dishes afterwards.
That’s a big list of demands ^
But this recipe meets every single one of them! This recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and yummy! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3/4 cup Almond Butter
- 1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
- 1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 scoop Kashi® GOLEAN™ Plant Powdered Shakes- Dark Cocoa Powder
How to make:
- Add all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon until combined
- Using your hands, form the mixture in 10 balls
- Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm
Recipe Notes: If you don’t follow a gluten-free or paleo diet, regular rolled oats and chocolate chips will work just fine! You can also sub almond butter for any other nut butter you choose.
When I first started making these, I would just use regular whey protein powder. That worked fine for a while but it wasn’t going to fly once we went paleo. I tried out the Kashi GOLEAN Plant Powdered Shakes in Dark Cocoa Powder and loved it! It’s so much better for us. It’s gluten free and vegan so it works perfectly with a paleo diet. It’s a brand new product from Kashi and I was so excited when I found it. I love that it’s full of clean ingredients! It’s a plant based protein powder that is perfect for an active lifestyle. You can use it for so many things! I like to blend it with a banana, some almond milk, and ice for a yummy breakfast shake. Or, just blend with water in a shaker bottle after a workout. It’s become a staple in our pantry!
