In fact these protein balls were so easy to make we even had time to make these fun GIFs


Here is the recipe to make small 16 balls


  • 120 grams small oats (gluten free if you like)
  • 120 grams unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 120 grams unflavoured/ vanilla plant based protein powder.
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • Handful of fresh mint, finally chopped or use a tbsp mint extract)
  • 60 grams dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 60 grams virgin, raw coconut oil
  • 120 millilitres unsweetened coconut milk (you can use oat/ almond milk if you prefer)


Add, shredded coconut and powder into a medium mixing bowl and mix.

Melt the chocolate and coconut oil over a bowl under a boiling pan of water until melted.

Pour through the oat mixture, gently stirring until all the oats areĀ covered in chocolate.

Add the coconut milk and process until the mixture binds.

Take handfuls of the mixture and roll into small balls using the palm of your hands.

Place on a tray, cover and refrigerate until firm.

And here’s another quick cheat! Pop these into the freezer for 30 minutes so they set quicker!

    Fab looking recipe. We are making some date and almond protein balls to help me with my progress after weight loss. I’ll have to give these ones a try in future. The mint and honey sounds good.

    Wow what a great idea and I’ve been looking at ways to consume more protein.
    I’m allergic to chocolate with Cocoa in and wonder if they would work with white chocolate?
    I might try White chocolate and dried raspberries with the coconut and see how they come out.

    These look great. Not keen on protein powders after seeing part of a documentary the others day and increase in kidney stones in users, but reckon I could adapt. I do love mint and chocolate flavours.
