Vanilla Toffee Protein Balls

I came across this delicious flavor of pea protein, vanilla Toffee from Now Sports. I blended it in my coffee, made a shake with it and then decided to make protein balls! They came out delicious and are super easy to make! They definitely satisfy your sweet tooth but are packed with protein so you don’t eat too many!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Now Sports Vanilla Toffee pea protein
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup of flaxmeal
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Roll into one inch balls and keep in the fridge. You can also store them in a freezer bag and freeze them to keep longer. These are a great snack to eat when you are headed to the gym or even post-workout! Enjoy!

Chocolate Almond Protein Balls


You know when you throw together a recipe without measuring one thing? Well this is that recipe! I will give you the measurements of what I “eyeballed” but you can definitely tweak it to your liking!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free oats
  • 1 tbs carob powder
  • 1/2 scoop Vega vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbs flax meal
  • 1 tbs chia seeds

  • 1/4 cup crushed almonds
  • 2 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup organic peanut butter
  • Small handful of Enjoy Life dairy free small chocolate chips 

Directions:

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl, then mix in all of the wet ingredients. Like I said before, I didn’t measure so you may need to add a little more maple syrup or a drop of water so it’s not too dry. Roll into small balls and then coat them in coconut flakes. 

Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet in the freezer for 2 hours and then transfer to freezer safe container. 

Enjoy!
