These Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Balls have the perfect mix of sweet and salty, plus the smooth chocolate coating with a crunchy inside! With only 8 ingredients, these easy-to-make protein balls will be your new favourite snack!
The first time I got the inspiration for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Balls was when I was in dire need of food. I’m sure you know that feeling of “hanger” too. The most convenient option for food was at a nearby Body Energy Club- a Vancouver-based health food store and smoothie bar. I picked up a package of their protein balls and fell in love! It was the crunchy texture that held together, and of course the flavour, that sold it. Whenever I can recreate a recipe at home, with my own ingredients, I will try my best to do so. So with the knowledge of the flavour and texture I was after, I set off to make my All Nutrition version. And now you can make this recipe yourself with ingredients you likely have on hand.
And for the chocolate coating: you just need dark chocolate chips and coconut oil! The coconut oil helps solidify the chocolate, giving it an extra crunchy bite.
It was hard to classify these Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Balls because they can fall within many categories. They are delicious desserts that satisfy a sweet tooth. They could be an uplifting and energizing afternoon snack. Alternatively, they can also classify as a protein ball, given the variety of ingredients. The peanut butter and protein powder together give each ball roughly 4 grams of protein. This is close to the range of protein recommended for a nourishing snack. Whichever way you want to categorize them, dessert, snack or protein ball, I think they will meet all of your needs!
I hope you get the chance to try these Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Balls! Let me know how you enjoy them in your day.
