We didn’t choose an easy road when we chose to follow a guilt-free diet; mainstream shopping and food prep are evidence of that. This doesn’t mean that we have to sit in a corner feeling sorry for ourselves, craving yummy treats. No way! With a little imagination we can create dishes that are just as delicious as, and way healthier than, their conventional counterparts. 

How Easy Is This Recipe To Make?

The hardest part of this recipe will be restraining yourself from eating all the chocolate before you coat the peanut butter protein balls. 

Will It Break The Vegan Keto Bank?

These delicious peanut butter protein balls contain a few ingredients that you already have in the pantry so these delicious little treats will be well worth the cost of the indulgent ingredients you may have to buy.  

Vegan Keto Secret Ingredient

The vegan keto chocolate peanut butter protein balls secret ingredient is Ghirardelli Chocolate Baking Bar, 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate, available from Amazon.com.   I love this ingredient because the dependable rich and full-bodied flavor gives you 100% impressive baking and cooking results every time. It never fails to impress bakers and home cooks with the rich yet balanced chocolate taste. Made in USA, you can rest assured that from the bean selection to processing and distribution you are getting the freshest product.

Recipe Tools

Food processor, two bowls, a pot, and a plate 

Mood

There’s nothing that says happiness quite like chocolate. Now throw in a bit of peanut butter and you have the makings of a good mood that’s going to last and last. As a lunch box snack or an after dinner treat, these vegan keto chocolate peanut butter protein balls are orbs of happiness.   

Does this recipe work with my diet?

As illustrated in the chart below, the vegan keto chocolate peanut butter protein balls recipe also works with Pegan, Paleo, PCOS, Ketotarian, Diabetic, and both gluten free and dairy free diets. Whole 30 folks can leave out the erythritol if they want to munch on a sweetener-free variant. One of the main ingredients in this recipe is peanut butter which makes it unsuitable for AIP peeps, but if you substitute the peanut butter with almond butter and leave out the erythritol, you could enjoy these protein balls as much as anyone else.  The healthy oils in the peanut butter and coconut oil also make it a great snack for those following the Keto & LCHF diet.
