Vegan protein balls

I got some pea protein powder at the SFN Expo in GlasgowSFN Expo in Glasgow. Don’t ask me why. I guess I was inspired by the peanut butter balls they were making with it. They looked delicious.

I’ve just made these:

Ingredients: pea protein powder, cocoa, ground hazelnuts, sweetened condensed coconut milk, chia seeds, peanut butter … and I think that’s it. I don’t recall the quantities as I just kept adding stuff until the consistency was right and it tasted good.

The sweetened condensed coconut milk I found in a health food store recently and bought a can thinking I might use it one day instead of cow’s condensed milk. It’s really good and I’ll buy it again. You could probably make a savoury version of these peanut butter balls without it but you’d need to add some other liquid instead otherwise they’ll be too dry. You could also use dates for sweetness.
