Vegan Choc-Protein Balls (that are kind of raw!)

Hi guys,

EDIT: Since changing my blog name the picture watermark links are kind of irrelevant...but I can't be bothered updating them!

My husband is always asking for treats which are yummy but have high protein content - so, I had to find him something which was of course vegan, easy to make (as I am lazy) and delicious!

A friend sent him a recipe of raw protein balls and I copied the recipe exactly, but it turned out terrible. It was dry, gross and boring...so, I made some adjustments and do believe I have created the *perfect* choc protein ball. It is, however not totally raw. To make this you will need a good food processor.

I don't normally 'do' recipes...I just chuck things together and hope for the best or know how much of something to use by guessing..but I have tried my best to describe the required quantities to make this!


  • 250-300gms of regular (preferably organic) almonds 
  • 14 fresh pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup Goji Berries
  • 1 tablespoon of Maca Powder
  • 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons of Loving Earth drinking chocolate powder or cacao powder
  • 3 teaspoons of coconut oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons of soymilk (please note, you will need to keep adding soymilk to achieve desired consistency)
  • Desiccated coconut for rolling the balls in
  • OPTIONAL: 1 tablespoon vegan honey, 2 tablespoons walnuts

  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients except coconut. Add more milk in if it seems too course/dry or the blades aren't spinning around properly.
  • Form into balls 
  • Roll balls in the desiccated coconut
  • Put balls onto a plate, into the fridge and leave for 30 mins before eating
  • Enjoy!

Mix all ingredients in food processor

This is a good consistency to get the mixture to. It doesn't have to be completely smooth.

Roll into balls and cover in desiccated coconut
