Almond Chocolate Vegan Protein Balls

Fudgy chocolate almond butter protein balls with a difference! These balls are sweetened with maple syrup rather than the usual dates and get their protein from a combination of black beans and a chocolate vegan protein blend.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Servings: 15 balls


  1. standard can of black beans, drained and rinsed well (approx. 240g)
  2. 60g oat flour
  3. 80g chocolate protein powder of choice*
  4. 80g smooth all-natural almond butter
  5. 80ml maple syrup
  6. 20g cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. ¼ tsp. Pink Himalayan Rock Salt
  9. 2 tbsp. of water


  1. Place all ingredients into your food processor and blend until completely smooth. Add more water slowly if necessary to create soft, pliable dough; it shouldn’t be sticky.
  2. Remove from the food processor and roll into 15 balls. Store in a seal tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze for up to one month. Best served at room temperature.


Note: Nutritional information is without the protein powder as nutritional information will vary depending on the brand chosen. Approximately 5g of protein powder is used in every ball.
