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.

  1. We’ve got a new vegan burger place down the road. Like all my favourite places, it’s very niche and will probably sadly close down through lack of custom 😦 They do gorgeous protein balls, and I am imagining that yours taste just as good. My favourite of theirs is a vegan snickers – have you ever had that?

    1. I have not tried a vegan snickers but it sounds delicious. I made the protein balls again last night and this time I have a proper recipe so I’ll put it on my blog later today.
