Chocolate Cocoa Mint Protein Ball Recipe

Vegan Mint Chocolate Protein Bites

If you love the taste of mint chocolate and the convenience of portable snacks, you're probably as addicted as I am to Bounce's Cacao Mint Protein Bombs.

Those little balls of goodness may be delicious, but they don't come cheap or vegan friendly, so I rustled up a version that taste just as good with not a drop of dairy. Read on to add these to your growing list of yummy protein ball recipes.

For easier processing, soften your dates by soaking them in warm water for 1-6 hours

Chocolate Cocoa Mint Protein Ball Recipe


  1. 130 grams almonds
    100 grams soft pitted dates
    3 tablespoons cocoa powder
    60 grams chocolate vegan protein (I used PhD Woman's natural protein)
    1 teaspoon peppermint extract
    50 grams cocoa nibs


  1. Blitz the almonds in the food processor until fine.
  2. Add 3 dates at a time and continue to mix, adding 2 tablespoons of water to soften the dough.
  3. Add cocoa powder, protein powder, and mint extract to the dough and blitz until everything is thoroughly combined.
  4. Part the dough into 10 portions and palm into balls.
  5. Pour the coco nibs into a shallow bowl and roll each ball in the nibs, pressing lightly to make sure it's coated. Enjoy!
  6. Store the remaining balls in the fridge.
