Cacao + Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Makes 10 Balls
Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins


  • 9 Medjool dates
  • 2 heaped Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup roasted unsalted peanuts or any other type of nuts will do
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 scoop vanilla pea protein powder
  • Pinch of himalayan salt


  • Remove pits from dates and add them to a bowl. Pour hot water over them to soften for approximately 5 mins.
  • Once the dates are soft, pour out all the water and place into a food processor or high speed blender along with the peanut butter and salt then blend until smooth.
  • Add in all remaining ingredients and blend together. Don't over blend as you still want some chunky bits in the mixture. If you are having trouble blending (I had a little) you can always stop and mix it together with a spoon then blend again.
  • Scoop out into a bowl and roll small amounts in your hands into balls and continue with the remaining mix.
  • Store in an air tight container in fridge and enjoy!
