Chocolate Chip Protein Balls

Chocolate Chip Protein Balls! Using the main ingredient in a quest bar- VitaFiber.

IMG_4843[1]

  • 2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein (82g)
  • 1/4 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1/4 Cup + 2 TBSP VitaFiber or Sugar Free Syrup
  • 3 TSP Stevia
  • 3 TBSP Sugar Free Chocolate Chips
  • 2 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • 4 TBSP Coconut Butter
  • 3 TBSP Coconut Oil
  • 2 TBSP Chopped Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 TSP Stevia

In a bowl whisk the protein powder, flour and 3 tsp stevia and set aside. In a sauce pan on low-medium heat, warm up the VitaFiber and vanilla for 2 minutes or until it bubbles. Slowly pour the syrup mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until completely mixed. Might look crumbly at first but that’s okay, use your hands and keep mixing. Form into 7-9 balls and place on wax paper.


Warm up your coconut butter, oil and stevia (I used the microwave in 10 second intervals until melted). Pour a spoonful over each ball and repeat. I had enough for 2 coats. Optional: Garnish with dark chocolate shavings. Let sit in the fridge for 15-20 minutes before serving. Store at room temperature in an air tight container.
