These peanut butter protein balls couldn’t be easier, and couldn’t be tastier! They are the best ones I’ve EVER made. And I’ve made some good ones! I’ve made

While I LOVE those other three recipes, this no-bake peanut butter and chocolate recipe is out of this world! The center tastes like peanut butter candy. And the chocolate and white chocolate coating makes a home run in taste!

How to make Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Almost all my no bake protein balls (or truffles) start the same. I use a protein powder, and blend it with something to form a dough, or ball. For the peanut butter ones, and to make them extra sweet, I used:

  • Vanilla protein powder (I use optimum nutrition for this. You can see my favorite protein powders here)
  • Peanut butter powder, to get that rich peanut butter flavor, without the calories and fat.
  • Then, the magic ingredient; zero calorie powdered sugar! This makes it VERY sweet. Which I LIKE! One thing about that sweetener though. They list a carb count, even though the net impact on blood sugar is zero net carbs. I do not take that into consideration when I post the carb count for this recipe.
  • And to have the melted chocolate be sugar free, I used Lily’s sugar free white chocolate bars (4 pieces). It is SO creamy and good!

  • Mix together protein powder, peanut butter powder, and the sugar free powdered sugar.
  • Then, using only 1-2 tablespoons of water in order to mix and form balls of dough. Then form into 7 equal balls. Too much water and you can't work with it. You really have to get your hands involved to use the least amount of water you can get away with.
  • Put the formed balls of peanut butter dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze just for about 20-30 minutes, so the melted chocolate is easier to dip.
  • Melt the chocolate. Take the peanut butter balls out of the freezer and dip each one. Return to fridge or freezer until you are ready to eat.
