“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vegan vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard protein balls are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best vegan protein balls recipe.
-½ cup peanut butter
-½ cup drink wholesome vegan vanilla protein powder
-½ cup rolled oats
-¼ cup shredded coconut
-½ cup mini chocolate chips
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well combined. Use your hands to roll the dough into a dozen balls. If you do not have a food processor, mix the ingredients in a medium bowl and use your hands to work the dough. Because peanut butter consistency can vary from one brand to another, you may need to add more peanut butter to help the balls stick together. You can store these vegan protein balls in the fridge for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
