Ingredients

  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips
  • ½ cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup chocolate protein powder
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp of water
  • dash of salt optional

Instructions

  • Let’s start by measuring and prepping all the ingredients needed.
  • Once you have everything on hand, place all the ingredients into a large bowl.
  • Using a spatula, or with your hands, mix everything until well combined. You need to have pliable but firm, dough-like consistency. If the mixture seems to be on the tough side and does not want to roll into a ball add more water or maple syrup. Do it so 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir well and try rolling again.
  • If the mixture seems to be too soft that doesn’t want to hold a ball shape, add oat flour. Do so 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir well and try rolling again.
  • Take a tablespoon-sized piece of dough and with the help of your palms tightly roll even balls. You can also use an ice cream scoop to help you have even portions.
  • Place rolled balls onto a sheet lined with parchment paper and chill for 10 minutes.
  • Once chilled place the balls into an airtight container and store them in a fridge.

Notes

  • If the mixture doesn’t want to stick together and roll into a ball, you can add a little more maple syrup, stir well and try rolling again. Do it so 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir well and try rolling again. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the mixture for a couple of minutes to help them firm up a bit before rolling.
  • Maple syrup can be swapped with honey or agave. 
  • Don’t want to roll them? You can press the mixture into a square pan and once they’ve chilled, cut them into squares to make them into no-bake Almond Joy energy bars.
  • Any creamy nut butter (such as cashew butter or almond butter) will work in place of peanut butter if needed but the flavor will change to taste like the nut butter.
  • Dutch-processed cocoa powder is my go-to as it has a fudgier chocolate flavor to it compared to natural cocoa powder.
  • You can add some hemp hearts or chia seeds for some extra added nutrition.
