  • 3/4 cup all natural drippy peanut butter (any nut butter will work)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour, plus more if necessary
  • 1/2 cup protein powder (I used Aloha Vanilla Protein Powder)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk, plus more if necessary
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, add all ingredients except chocolate chips. Mix together using a wooden spoon until ingredients are well combined and resemble a soft cookie dough. If it seems to dry add a teaspoon or two more almond milk. If too wet, add a teaspoon more of coconut flour. (The important note is that you'll want to be able to roll the dough into balls that stick together well.) 
  2. Stir in chocolate chips, then roll into 12 tablespoon sized balls. Transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge. Makes 12 balls.

Recipe Notes

To make vegan: Use vegan chocolate chips such as enjoy life, or leave out chocolate chips completely.

I recommend using Aloha's protein powder which is plant based and made without stevia (they use a small amount of coconut sugar). It's my absolute favorite vegan protein powder out there and makes these balls irresistible. If you decide to use another protein powder, make sure that it's all natural, no sugar added and clean.
