hemp force power balls
vegan, gluten-free, no sugar added
total time: five minutes
makes 18 balls

ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) creamy peanut butter
  • 1 TB unrefined coconut oil
  • 6 scoops (2 servings) hemp force protein powder
  • 1/2 cup (4 oz) almond milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 3 cups brown rice cereal

directions:

  1. in a large saucepan over low heat, melt peanut butter and coconut oil together.
  2. in a separate bowl, combine protein powder and almond milk to make a thick paste.
  3. add protein powder mixture to the saucepan and mix well.
  4. fold in coconut and brown rice cereal and mix well.
  5. using your hands, roll into 1.5” balls.
  6. store in an airtight container.

the key ingredient here is the hemp force protein powder. if you don’t like the flavor of your protein powder, you’re not going to like the flavor of your balls! also, onnit’s hemp force protein powder is packed with fiber (11 grams per serving!), high-quality plant-based protein, and whole hemp seeds. you can see them in these balls amidst the brown rice and coconut flakes.

the hemp seeds are one of the healthy fat sources in these balls. the other two sources are the coconut oil and the peanut butter. it’s a fat trifecta!

and, like i said, there is no added sugar. the hemp force is stevia-sweetened and your taste buds will never miss the sugar that isn’t there… especially when paired with the peanut butter and coconut.

here are the super sweet stats per ball:

marshall and i LOVED these popable protein bites. oh, and guess who else loved them? yeah.. penny and randy.. because they know that a recipe with peanut butter = spatula licking time for them.

No way! These look absolutely incredible! And they also have none of my allergies in them!
This makes me super duper excited, and I’m totally making them.
Hemp protein rocks! It tastes amazing mixed with cacao powder. Yum.

Looks good to me! (Really good!)
My dogs come running into the kitchen the moment I open a peanut butter jar. They can smell it from the furthest point away in the house. And of course, I always give them a little bit because it’s super entertaining for me to watch them smack their tongues for a good 20 minutes trying to get it all down. :)

YUM! i love healthy balls for snack!! (uhhh that didn’t sound right. but you know what i mean!)

I use to use Hemp Protein all of the time but haven’t restocked on it in awhile. I think out of all of the protein powder’s, hemp is my favorite!

What a great idea – do you just store them in the fridge then?? How long do they last? Hope you are having a great week!

Janetha April 16, 2013 at 10:34 am

No need to refrigerate unless you like them cold. I put mine in foil but Tupperware works, too :)

Hi. These should great but alternatives to the peanut butter?

Janetha April 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm

You can use any other nut butter! If you can’t do nuts, you can use sunflower seed butter.

These look and sound delicious!! The pups have given them their “lick” of approval I’m sure!!

P.S. will you please make some for me?!?
