Healthy Chocolate Protein Balls

Monday, January 4, 2016

Hello lovelies,
it's time for the recipe for all the sweet tooth junkies out there. It is healthy as well. Not only junk food is delicious. Healthy food can be delicious too.

This recipe has some ingredients which are not 100% healthy, such as chocolate, but you can use 100% dark chocolate if that is the flavor you prefer and want to make the balls 100% healthy. My option is always dark chocolate, but this time, I was making the balls for the guests, so I didn't want to use 100% dark chocolate, as some of them do not like the bitter taste of it.

Ingredients I used:

  • 500gr milk chocolate (stevia version)
  • Almond milk
  • Coconut oil
  • Honey
  • Hazelnuts
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Plazma biscuits (and a couple of Elvita wholegrains biscuits)
  • Vanilla sugar
  • Dolcela decoratives for baking
  • Chia seeds
  • Pretzels
The mixture for protein balls is super easy. But, you will need around two hours to make 30 chocolate balls if you want to make them super polished and nice looking. As well as extra half an hour for reindeer balls. Decorating takes the most of the time. But if you like baking it will be fun and joyful.

Make the mixture out of coconut oil, honey and almond milk. Pour it into one big bowl. Hazelnuts, biscuits, walnuts, almonds, chia seeds, vanilla sugar are the ingredients that you should mix together with the liquid mixture. You will know when the mixture is perfect once you try to make the balls with your hands. You can put the mixture in the fridge for half an hour, and it will be easier to shape the balls.

For the chocolate dip, melt it over the hot boiling water. Put a little bit of almond milk and coconut oil. Once your balls are ready, dip them into the chocolate. You can decorate them with m&m's. It is up to you. I decorated mine with m&m's because there were some left, as I needed only red ones for the noses of reindeer balls. 

I used little white balls for the eyes, and pretzels for the ears. 

Happy healthy baking!
