Here’s the best thing about these Chocolate Protein Balls: How many recipes lead to a food that can be eaten as dessert, breakfast, or a post-workout snack?

Plus, you don’t have to cook or bake a thing to make them. You just throw some ingredients in a blender, shape them into balls, and then put them in the fridge to firm up.

Also, they taste like wholesome Reese’s peanut butter cups. Hurry, get to work.

10 minutes

12 Servings


1 cup (12 large) medjool dates

1/3 cup Life’s Abundance Chocolate Protein Powder

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoons natural peanut butter

2 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk



Chocolate Protein Balls
  1. Add dates to a food processor or high-speed blender and process until they are broken down and form a large ball.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and continue processing until a dough forms, scraping down the sides as needed. The dough should stick together easily but not be overly sticky to the touch.
  3. Use a tablespoon to scoop dough and roll each portion into 1-inch balls. Coat as desired with cocoa powder, unsweetened coconut flakes, or finely crushed almonds.
  4. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to a week.


In addition to being a great source of protein (it’s in the name!), these balls contain the flavanol powers of chocolate and a dose of healthy fats from coconut oil and peanut butter.
