Ball Out With This Irresistible Chocolate Protein Popper Recipe

Want to learn how to make a tasty protein ball, packed with almond butter and honey to boot? Indulge in this nutrient-rich recipe that when substituted for ice cream and candy, can help you boost your weight loss without added exercise.

Why ball out with protein snacks?

After sticking with a healthy diet free of processed, sugary foods for a few weeks, your sweet tooth is bound to have its cravings. For some of you, it might not even be that long. One day without sugar and all you can think about is ice cream, cake, and candy. Fortunately, eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to forgo everything that you love. With a few smart substitutions, some creativity, and a little effort, you can easily come up with a recipe or two that will take the edge off those cravings, all while allowing you to keep the edge on your diet plan.

For many women, the sweet taste is what they miss most when they switch over to a nutritional plan full of lean protein, healthy greens, and good fats. This is why we have come up with the following recipe that can easily work as a snack at any part of the day, or double up as a dessert following a meal.

You’ll hardly even feel like you’re eating healthy because they taste so good!

These protein balls contain a quality carbohydrate source that will provide long lasting energy, a healthy fat source to keep your blood sugar levels in check, along with lean protein, which will help to repair and rebuild your muscle tissues while boosting your metabolic rate. To top things off, I’ve also incorporated in a small dose of dark chocolate to provide an antioxidant punch to this recipe. The only sweetener in this recipe is all-natural honey, so it’s something you can feel completely good putting into your body.


  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ scoop vanilla whey protein powder
  • ½ cup oatmeal (instant, raw)
  • *BONUS* - 3 tbsp. mini dark chocolate chips
  • *BONUS* - dried cranberries


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the almond butter, honey, and vanilla extract.
  2. Next, add in the oatmeal, protein powder, and chocolate chips and continue mixing until well blended.
  3. Now place this into the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the dough once time is up and then form into small balls with your hands.

These can be stored in the fridge for up to four days, so can easily provide on-the-go snacks for the week to come.
