Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Balls

February 7, 2019

I kid you not, these are the ultimate and best tasting vegan peanut butter protein balls. I originally created this recipe after spending fat too much money on store bought protein balls. At $3 per ball, having protein balls daily was costing me $21 per week! I’ve also prefer to make food from scratch where I can, so making these protein balls was an easy way to save money, get a nutritious dairy-free, vegan snack into my day and increase how much protein I was eating!

The only downside to making protein balls is the outlay of costs can be a bit expensive. Unfortunately almond meal and cacao powder don’t come cheap! I highly reccomend buying these ingredients in bulk and making a large batch of protein balls. Honestly, if you can – double the recipe and make 30 of them! Store them in the freezer for later, and if you’re like me and have protein balls daily – you’re set for a month!

Once you’re ready to use the balls, simply pop them in the fridge the morning of, or just place them straight into your lunchbox and they’ll be ready to go by snack time!
