Coffee Protein Balls
Swap your morning latte with a coffee protein ball! They're rich in that coffee scent and flavour we know you love. And best of all, they're easy to make with just six ingredients; it's no wonder this is one of our favourite protein ball recipes!
Here's what you'll need: two scoops of Happy Way's coffee flavoured whey protein powder, half a cup of almond butter, half a cup of rice malt syrup or honey, and one cup of instant oats (flakes oats). You'll also need one espresso shot and half a cup of crushed almonds.
To make these protein balls, add all of the ingredients into a bowl. Then, mix it with a spoon. Once combined, roll the mixture into bite-sized balls. Then, roll the balls into the crushed almonds and set them all aside. Next, place them into the fridge for one hour. Now all you need to do is eat and enjoy them!
Berry Protein Balls
This berry amazing recipe always has us wanting more! It reminds us of summer, and we adore the ingredients used! If you're looking for new protein ball recipes, then give this one a go.
Have prepared one cup of dates, soaked and one cup of almonds. You'll also need two tablespoons of berry flavoured whey protein powder, one tablespoon of honey or rice malt syrup, juice of half a lemon, and a third of a cup of Goji Berries. Lastly, you'll need two tablespoons of melted coconut oil, and half a cup of desiccated coconut plus extra to roll!
Let's make these protein balls!
To begin with, soak the dates in warm water for 15 minutes. Then, strain them and set them aside. Next, add the almonds to a food processor and blend them for one to two minutes until almond meal consistency.
Once you've done that, add all the remaining ingredients and blend until it is well-formed. Then, roll the mixture into individual balls and coat them in desiccated coconut. Place the protein balls into the fridge to set for around 20-30 minutes. Then, sit back and enjoy your wonderful creation!

Raw Salted Caramel Protein Powder Balls
Salted caramel - is there a better combo? Well, it's high on our list of favourite pairings, and we're super excited to share this recipe with you.
This one needs eight ingredients, some of which you may have in your pantry. Here's what you'll need: one cup of chocolate whey protein powder, one cup of peanut butter (or your favourite nut/seed butter), one cup of desiccated coconut, and one tablespoon of chia seeds. You'll also need half a cup of rolled oats, one tablespoon of maple syrup or honey, two tablespoons of water, and a pinch of salt. We love these ingredients; it’s no wonder it’s one of our favourite protein ball recipes!
Okay, let's make these protein balls! So, if you want to make around 18 protein balls, begin by mixing the peanut butter and maple syrup in a big bowl or your food processor until it's all combined.
Then, add the oats, chia seeds, three-quarters of the desiccated coconut and the protein powder to the bowl.
If you're using a large wooden spoon instead of a food processor, combine all of the ingredients well until a sticky and dough-like consistency forms.
If the mixture is too wet, add a touch more protein power, or a bit of water if it's too dry and not sticking together.
Next, roll the dough into balls. Then, pour the remainder of the desiccated coconut into a bowl and roll and coat the protein balls in it.
Lastly, place the protein balls in the fridge, allowing them to firm up.
Once they're set, enjoy every delicious mouthful!
