Low Carb Peanut Butter Balls

This easy recipe for low carb peanut butter balls made with protein powder makes a great afterschool or ketogenic snack.

Course: Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: peanut butter, quick and easy

Ingredients

  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 1/3 cup whey protein powder (116 g) (I use unflavored Isopure zero carb)
  • 1/2 tsp stevia glycerite* (your favorite powdered sweetener to taste)

Instructions

  • NOTE: Depending on the brand of peanut butter and protein powder you use, you may need LESS protein powder. Start with adding half, then continue adding until a nice consistency is achieved. It will be firm enough to roll into balls, but soft enough that they will squish down a little when stacked on top of each other. Some protein powders are more chalky than others. I like Isopure zero carb whey protein isolate. There will be a slight crystalline feel to the protein balls when you bite into them.
  • Add the ingredients to a medium bowl and mix (knead) together with a rubber spatula until thoroughly combined.
  • Pinch-off walnut sized portions of the dough and roll into balls.
  • Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 10 days.

Variations:

  • ADD: Cinnamon, cocoa powder, extracts and flavorings, nuts, coconut, seeds

    ROLL-IN: Crushed nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, chocolate sprinkles (for kids)

    FLAVORED PROTEIN POWDER: Use any flavored protein powder you have that would taste great with peanut butter. Additional sweeteners can be omitted.

    DIFFERENT NUT AND SEED BUTTERS: Depending on the consistency of alternate nut butters, more or less protein powder may be needed to get a less sticky dough-like consistency.

Notes

*If your protein powder is flavored and sweetened, you may not need to add an additional sweetener.
