My Healthy-ish Protein Balls Also Have Beauty Benefits

Here at Adore HQ, our New Year’s resolution was to make more realistic resolutions. We just want to be the best version of ourselves, and we don’t need to lose five kilos or become vegan to do that.

As long as we feel good about ourselves, we’re on the right track aren’t we? One little thing that makes me feel like I’m being healthy (and mildly satisfies my chocolate addiction) is making protein balls.

But these aren’t just any protein balls, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you.

What You’ll Need:

1 cup of mixed raw nuts

1 cup of oats

1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 tablespoon of Vida Glow Beauty Protein (Chocolate)

2/3 cup of Mayver’s Organic Peanut & Cacao Spread

2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup

2-3 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk

1 cup of desiccated coconut


Firstly, use a food processor to blend the mixed raw nuts until finely milled. Add to bowl with the remainder of dry ingredients, except the coconut.

Add the Peanut & Cacao Spread (I buy this from Coles), rice malt syrup and unsweetened almond milk to the bowl. If you don’t have almond milk, you can just use water.

Mix together until all ingredients are combined, the consistency should be sticky and able to hold together. If you need more moisture, just add a little more almond milk or water.

Use your hands to roll the mixture into balls, put the desiccated coconut onto a plate and roll the protein balls around until fully covered in coconut. Then just put them in the fridge for about an hour before eating.

“Absolutely love this flavour protein powder. I have had it with almond milk and also with almond milk and banana to make it thicker and milkshake-ish. I sometimes have trouble with protein powders due to IBS but this one actually reduces my symptoms (not sure how or why but I’m not complaining!). Definitely buying again!”
