Chocolate Peanut Butter 90 Calorie Balls

All you need is a food processor or high-speed blender, and you'll be biting into these soft, cookie-dough-like protein balls in a matter of minutes. Made with only five simple ingredients, they taste delicious enough to be considered dessert but are protein-packed, so they're also perfect for a post-workout treat.

At 90 calories, each protein ball offers 3.3 grams of protein, and for less than 10 grams of sugar.

INGREDIENTS
  • 5 tablespoons dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)

  • 1 cup salted roasted peanuts

  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (about 10 to 12)

  • 1 scoop vanilla plant-based protein powder (about 35 grams; I used Vega)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

DIRECTIONS
  • Chop chocolate chips with a knife and set aside in a small bowl.

  • Add peanuts to a food processor or high-speed blender. Process nuts until a creamy peanut butter forms.

  • Add dates and mix until smooth.

  • Add in the protein powder until thoroughly combined.

  • Lastly, add the applesauce and mix until a creamy, thick dough forms.

  • Roll dough into 22 balls, coat each ball with the chopped chocolate, and place on a plate.

  • Enjoy immediately, or if you like a firmer consistency, refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. Store uneaten balls in an airtight container in the fridge.
