- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup protein powder
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (or honey)
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp almond flour (or 1/4 cup oat flour)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, add peanut butter, protein powder, almond flour, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt.
- Mix ingredients together until evenly combined. If the dough is too sticky and wet, add extra almond flour one tablespoon at a time. If the dough is too dry, add extra maple syrup one teaspoon at a time.
- Add mini chocolate chips to the dough. Mix together until evenly combined.
- Using clean hands, scoop and roll the dough into bite-sized balls. Enjoy!
- Storage: keep protein balls inside a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. If storing longterm, keep inside a sealed ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 3 months.
- Peanut butter: use a thick, no-stir peanut butter for the best results. If you are using a runny, natural peanut butter, you may need to add extra almond flour to hold the ingredients together.
- Nut-free: use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter and oat flour instead of almond flour.
- Keto: use sugar-free maple syrup and stevia-sweetened chocolate chips.
- Sugar-free: use stevia-sweetened maple syrup.
- Paleo: use almond butter instead of peanut butter.
