Vegan Carob Protein Balls

The recipe that follows is one variation of a peanut butter carob protein ball that I make frequently to snack on during lunch meetings at work or while playing at chess tournaments. They are a superb and tasty source of energy, rather filling for their size, relatively healthy compared to store-bought protein bars, and easy to make.


Recipe makes about 21 Tablespoon-sized balls.

As usual, most ingredient measurements are exact, i.e., by weight. I’ve tried to approximate the volume measurements in parentheses.

  • 120 g oats, ground to a flour (1.5 cups)

  • 10 g spirulina (1 Tb)
  • 10 g rice protein powder (1 heaping Tb)
  • 20 g hemp protein powder (2 heaping Tb)
  • 40 g carob powder (4 Tb)
  • cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
  • 24 g raisins (2 packed Tb)
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk
  • 64 g chunky peanut butter (1/4 cup)
  • 64 g chunky almond butter (1/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 70 g liquid sweetener of choice (3 1/2 Tb)

Step by step pictorial…


oat flour, cinnamon, spirulina, and nutmeg


rice and hemp protein powders


carob powder


raisins


non-dairy milk, nut butters, and sweetener

One thing I often do with the sweetener is to cut it in half calorically with an all-fruit jam, in this case, strawberry.


Pour wet into dry and mix well


A thick, chocolate-like dough is the result

Scoop up the dough by the Tablespoon and roll into balls. If it’s too sticky, like this batch, which had a bit more than a 1/2 cup of soymilk, moisten the palms of your hands with water. Place on a cookie sheet or, as above, in the wells of a cupcake pan, and freeze for a couple hours. Enjoy! :)

Note: If you use one of the links above, I get a small cut of the sale (at no extra cost to you). Even without this incentive, I recommend them for these treats.

    These look delish. I’ve really been loving making my own protein bars. I’ll have to look for hemp powder to add and also try adding spirulina.
