A brief history of protein powder

Protein balls, made with protein powder, are somewhat of a new snack. In fact, protein powder didn’t even exist before the 1950’s (source). According to the article, “the first protein powder marketed to weightlifters, containing soy beans, wheat germ and sea kelp.”

Since that first protein powder made with soy beans and sea kelp, it’s gotten a lot more palatable. Made with whey or casein in my personal experience, the protein powder of today is much more palatable!

Looking for new ways to include protein powder in my diet, beyond drinking protein shakes, recipes made with protein powder was born.

Now, only a few short decades later, protein powder and protein powder recipes is an 18 billion dollar industry.

The making of a protein ball

After realizing you could get a whopping 20+ grams of protein from protein powder, without having to drink it, I was hooked on protein powder recipes. Eating my calories, rather than drinking them is so much more satiating!

So, combining a nut butter, oats, and protien powder, you can basically make any type of no-bake protein ball.

So far I’ve made:

So, while I’d love to get all my protein for the day in a protein ball, because they are so tasty, the nut butter does add quite a few calories. So, practicing portion control is very important, and definitely the hardest part of this delicious no-bake recipe.

So, give this a try, and let me know what you think!
