    This wd probably work with pea protein (unflavoured) and some vanilla?

    • Maybe, I am not so sure. Unflavoured powders are often noticeable different to the flavoured varieties. x

    How many balls did you get out of this!

    Can I use more nut/seed butter instead of the liquid sweetener?

  • Jenny

    What would you recommend as a substitute for the protein powder, if you didn’t want to put it in?

  • Tania Davis

    Oh my gosh these are delish! I used my Arbonne vanilla shake powder & have to double the recipe now so I have enough with my husband continuously stealing them!

  • Sam

    What sort of protein powder do you use??

    These came out too dry like there wasn’t enough liquid. I’m wondering if my 1/2C measurement is different to yours? What quantity is your 1/2C?

      Try adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to the mix it has a low set point so its perfect

      I added 45ml of water which helped massively. Instead of 1/2 cup, I used 3 scoops of protein powder (90g).

    Don’t use Whey Protein though, that shit is more insulinogenic that pure sugar. Your insulin will spike through the roof. Use rice or pea protein instead.

    Also maple syrup is far better than honey.

    Love these! Took me less than five minutes to make and taste so good! I used Prana ON plant protein powder instead of a whey protein

    How many calories roughly would these be please?

      Would also like to know…

        See above comment – I made 8 at 117 calories per ball.

      I made these into 8 balls and added the recipe into MyFitnessPal. With the ingredients I used, they came out to 117 calories per ball.

  • I made these, with a few changes. I used cashew butter, because I don’t do peanuts, and vanilla protein powder because I was using what I had on hand. They were good, but the Teen commented that they’d be better with a bit of ‘crunch’, so the next time I made them I add 1/2 a cup of rice pops. The last batch I made I rolled in melted 100% chocolate (only because I have it and want to use it ’cause it’s so good). With the changes, these taste like Ferrero Roche balls. I take them any time I have to bring a plate, because they take me about 10 minutes to throw together and there are never any left over. And no-one believes me when I say they’re ‘healthy’.

    Love! I use natural peanut butter with chia seeds added abit of organic coconut oil as i found mixture was a tad dry, rolled balls in unsweetend coconut flakes, also used Maxines protein powder, did the trick. Thank you so much.
