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

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

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

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’.
