The Exact Ratio of Ingredients will depend a little on the kind of protein powder and the peanut butter that you use, also taste. I used 100% Gold standard Whey protein powder from optimum nutrition, Vanilla Flavor, for this recipe, but chocolate and other flavors work as well. If the peanut butter has more oil (natural peanut butters will vary a lot in amounts of oil), youll probably need more protein powder. Also the amount of sweetener is obviously to taste. Note that these balls are soft at room temp. so you can’t throw them in a bag and expect that they will hold their shape.
- 1 cup sugar free peanut butter
- 4 scoops (or 1 and 1/3 cups) whey protein—any flavor
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- artificial sweetener to taste, about 1 – 1 and 1/2 cup sugar equivalent
Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix all at once. A mixer works great for this, but a food processor might work as well, or just a spoon. Then roll into balls. If you like roll in crushed nuts, or almond meal and that works as well..
For my sweetener I use Splenda.
Makes approximately 16 balls about 1 inch in diameter.
