No-Bake 10 Minute Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Balls Ingredients

What is the best vegan protein powder? 

I use a pea protein powder called Orgain organic vanilla protein. This is not an add, just my personal opinion on their protein powder. I’ve tried countless different brands and flavours, and this one is my favourite. I think vegan protein powder tends to be chalky, which I don’t love. And this one is not! I also love that it’s organic and all natural and made with ingredients like organic pea protein, chia seeds and organic brown rice. 

What can I use instead of maple syrup in my Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Balls? 

You can try these protein balls without any sweetener, although the flavour won’t be quite as nice. Instead of maple syrup try swapping in agave, or brown rice syrup.

Are Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Balls healthy? 

It depends on the protein balls. Some are packed full of sugar, and some are not vegan, just be sure to always read the ingredients so you know what you are consuming. Protein balls with ingredients like the ones in this recipe are super healthy. They are not however, low in calories. That being said, we need calories and healthy fats not only to live but for brain function and to fuel our bodies! The ingredients in these protein balls have so many health benefits, and make the perfect healthy plant-based post-workout or busy day snack. I’ve even had these for breakfast (with an apple and banana) on a busy day when I didn’t have time to make a smoothie. I love starting my day knowing it’s packed full of vegan protein, omega 3’s, and of course fiber! 

How do you store protein balls? 

These Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Balls can be stored in the fridge for up to a week in an airtight container. If you leave the out of the fridge even for a few hours on a hot day, they can get a little sticky and melty. Keep them cool for the best consistency.

  • Start by adding 2 tbsp of almond milk, and add another if the dough is still too dry. This can vary depending on how thick your peanut butter is, and which protein powder you are using.
  • Next, add in the chocolate chips and mix well to combine.
  • Shape into 12 cookie dough balls, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
