I adapted this recipe from Jessica at Desserts with Benefits recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls. I made a few alterations to the recipe (I was out of a few things). Next time I make these I want to make a lower sugar version using stevia or a mix of stevia and honey or agave. In spite of the substitutions I made to the recipe, these still turned out delicious! Very yummy…very close to a dessert but still healthy.

Here are the subs I made:

  • I used chocolate SunWarrior brown rice protein powder instead of whey protein powder
  • I used creamy almond butter instead of peanut butter
  • I used honey and added a dash of salt and a little bit of vanilla

If you want to make these, go check out Jessica’s original recipe!
