This basic protein ball recipe doesn’t require a food processor or any fancy equipment. Throw your favourite nut butter and dried fruit combo into a bowl and mix to combine. What’s your favourite combo?

These are a great little protein hit post-workout! At 9g of protein per ball, these are perfect if you can’t stomach anything big within 30 minutes post-exercise or your recovery meal is going to be delayed.

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops (60g) protein powder of choice – we use a natural WPI from Venom
  • 2 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice (e.g. peanut, almond, cashew nut butter) – we used peanut
  • 1/4 cup dried fruit of choice (e.g. cranberries, blueberries, sultanas, dates) – we used blueberries
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut to coat. Or try chia seeds, crushed nuts, goji berries …

Method

  1. Mix all ingredients (except the coconut) together in a bowl to form a thick paste
  2. Add a little water if the mixture is too dry
  3. Roll into 10 even sized balls
  4. Then roll in coating of your choice
  5. Leave to set in the fridge or freezer overnight
