Peanut Butter Protein Balls Recipe

Eating a protein-filled breakfast is an important part of staying healthy, fueling your metabolism, and both losing and maintaining your weight.  Unfortunately, many breakfast foods are high in carbs.  Eggs are an obvious choice, but you can only eat eggs every morning for so long before you get sick and tired of them.  That’s where this new recipe comes in.  The best part is that it tastes like you’re eating cookie dough for breakfast!  Who wouldn’t love that?

In addition to a breakfast food, these protein balls make excellent snacks for when you are craving something sweet.  Every time we run out, my fiance continues to hint that I should make some more.  You should be warned, they are addicting and go fast!  This version is my latest recipe that I used to make them.  Feel free to play around with the amounts of ingredients.  I usually don’t measure exactly, hence the approximation you see.  Let me know how they come out and any adaptations you make!!

Do you have the nutrition information for this recipe? Also, what is the serving size? I’d like to know how many carbs are in each serving before I decide if I want to make the recipe.

Hi Charity!
The recipe makes about 12-14 balls. Each ball is roughly 100 calories and about 9g fat, 3g carbs, 4g protein, and 2.5 g fiber. Although they are high in fat, the fat is natural and healthy for your body. Hope this helps!

? Is there a a different kind of oil than coconut. I’m not a fan of coconut. What is stevia?

    Michele - January 3, 2014 Reply

    You can use any oil of your choice. Personally, I think the coconut flavor is mild enough that the end product doesn’t taste like coconut. Stevia is a natural zero calorie sweetener. You can find it in the sugar section of most grocery stores or in the health food aisle. Enjoy! :)

Just whipped up a batch of these, very easy-to-follow and simple recipe. I couldn’t get hold of Stevia drops so I cheated and put a little teaspoon of honey in to sweeten. I also added a couple tablespoons of cocoa nibs to make them “chocolate chip”. They’re in the fridge now, the batter tastes delicious!
