Protein Energy Balls

This chocolate protein energy balls recipe is so quick, easy and T-A-S-T-Y, we guarantee you’ll be making this one over and over again! These protein energy balls are packed with good stuff, including healthy fats from pecans, peanut butter and coconut. Not to mention a healthy dose of protein, courtesy of HERMOSA.

Most of the sweetness that melts through in these gym-ready chocolate protein energy balls comes from raisins (and a dash of agave!). So, to balance things out, and give you that post-workout protein fix, we’ve also added HERMOSA Sculpt Chocolate Vegan Protein, for a more balanced energy ball and chocolatey touch.

SUBSTITUTES

Vegan protein - If you’d rather, you can just as easily swap out the vegan protein for HERMOSA Sculpt Chocolate Whey Protein if that's more your bag. It’s packing the same protein content and banging flavour.

Agave nectar - Likewise, if you’d rather switch out the agave for honey, that totally works as well. You do you!

Nuts - If you’ve got a nut allergy or just want to mix things up a bit, you can sub out the pecans for sunflower or pumpkin seeds. And for the peanut butter, try using sunflower seed butter, which is a great source of vitamin E, protein, magnesium and healthy fats.
