3 Recipes for Muscle Building Protein Balls


You’re at work, it’s mid afternoon, and suddenly you’re feeling peckish. You try to ignore it, and make yourself a cup of tea, in the vain hope that it might satisfy your appetite, but if anything, it only serves as an appetiser. Now you're even hungrier than before. In fact, you're absolutely starving, despite the half chicken, bag of spinach and heap of mashed sweet potato you had for lunch. Your eyes meet with the glistening, quadruple chocolate sponge cake that Janet from accounts so kindly made (though without once considering that it’s a mere three month’s until you’re off to Marbella), and you begin to salivate....


Though a slice of cake is absolutely fine now and then, it's hardly a long term solution. Instead, have a read of our three amazing protein ball recipes below; highly nutritious, incredibly moreish, and ultra convenient, they're the perfect in-between meal snack!

Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Makes 15 Balls

1 cup rolled oats
200g peanut butter
90g agave honey
Half cup of sesame seeds
1 scoop whey protein powder (optional)

1) Aside from the sesame seeds, mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor, and separate into approximately 15 walnut sized balls

2) Arrange the sesame seeds onto a flat plate, and roll each ball into the pile until fully coated (this reduces stickiness!)

3) Place balls in the fridge for a couple of hours until hardened, and enjoy!

The high protein content, provided from the oats, peanut butter and protein will not only help build muscle, but will keep you feeling fuller for longer, while the agave honey is a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Pecan & Date Protein Balls

Makes 10 Balls

50g pecans
40g dates
30g hemp seeds
20g coconut oil
Half cup of chopped pistachio nuts
1 scoop whey protein powder (optional)

1) As before, mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor, this time leaving out the pistachios, and separate into approximately 10 walnut sized balls

2) Spread the chopped pistachio nuts out onto a flat plate, and again roll each ball into the pile

3) Place balls in the fridge for a couple of hours until hardened

Dates are rich in dietary fibre, which aids digestion, while the pecans and hemp seeds provide a dose of important vitamins and minerals, including calcium, iron and magnesium.

Dried Fruit Energy Balls

Makes 10 Balls

140g raisins
80g dried apricots
80g dried cherries
Quarter cup rolled oats
20g coconut oil
Half cup of coconut flakes

1) Once again, mix all of the ingredients together in a food processor, leaving behind the coconut flakes for coating, and separate the mixture into approximately 10 walnut sized balls

2) Arrange the coconut flakes onto a flat plate, and roll each ball into the pile until fully coated

3) Place balls in the fridge for a couple of hours until hardened

Not only a fruit cocktail of vitamin A and C, the high fructose content of these dried fruit balls will provide you with a boost of energy for when you really need it!
