Low-Carb Peanut Butter Protein Balls

I usually make these sweets as a fusion of home-made protein bars/cups and treats for public appearances (such as parties for example) because as a trainer I can always calm my conscience by saying “come on, they’re full of protein”. I have no guilt whatsoever when I wolf them down, especially after training. This is a treat that requires neither too much patience nor extraordinary proficiency at the arts of confectionary. You just take the ingredients, which you usually have at home anyway, mix, Play-Doh, dip, cool, wait… wait… wait… (that’s probably the most stressful part), attack, gobble down and enjoy the satisfaction.

All right, the dipping phase may turn out to be a bit stressful too, partly because I hate doing the washing up afterward and partly because I end up covered in chocolate from top to toe even if I try to do it with a fork under laboratory circumstances. But the thing is that it’s so much better covered in chocolate that I’m willing to sacrifice the few neurons I burn out on the way. I make them as beautiful as the occasion requires.

For guests, I pimp them up with ground hazelnuts, shredded coconuts or chocolate coating but when I make them for myself I sometimes simply forget about all these: it’s quicker and requires less effort. See also these peanut butter balls dessert, you will love them.

  1. 1. Put the ingredients into a bowl.
  2. 2. Roll small balls with your hands.
  3. 3. Melt the chocolate over simmering water, use a fork to dip the balls into the chocolate and put them on a fridge-proof plate.
  4. 4. To decorate you can use sprinkles or food-dyed chocolate, like I did.
  5. 5. Cool the balls for 1 or 2 hours in the fridge.
  6. 6. That’s it 🙂
