No-Bake Protein Balls

Adina Elena Vladulescu
You probably have your favorite store-bought protein bars at home, I do too! But honestly, I really like making these protein balls because I can control what ingredients go in the mix, it decreases the packaging that goes to waste and I can easily adapt them to my taste preferences! Every ball contains 7g of protein. Take 10 minutes to roll up a batch of these protein balls and you’ll have a nutritious and filling snack readily available all week!
Prep Time 10 mins
Chill Time 15 mins
Total Time 25 mins
Course Snack
Servings 10 balls

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup textured vegetables protein (TVP)
  • 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 5 tbsp molasses*
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions
 

  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the desired texture is obtained. I liked them to be crunchy so a few pulses were sufficient. If you want the texture to be smoother, leave them for longer.
  • Form 10 balls using your hands and place them on a plate.
  • Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

*If you don’t like the taste of molasses, you can replace it with maple syrup or honey. If the mixture becomes too moist, add a bit more ground flaxseeds. Feel free to further adapt them to your taste preferences by adding more nuts, dried fruits, cinnamon, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.
