Gluten-free no bake chocolate protein balls

Protein balls have become quite the trend lately. I tried my hand at making these and they are so easy to do. I love chocolate, I love peanut butter...perfect!

These gluten free protein balls are a great snacking option, perfect after a workout or as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack. I made these with peanut butter, protein powder, chocolate and some honey. I recently read an article saying that not all protein powders are gluten free, so check the labels carefully.

I reckon these can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days in a container. You wouldn't really have to worry about this too much as they disappear quite fast. :)

Ingredients

1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I used the smooth one)
40 gms dark chocolate (at least 70%)
2 tbsp honey
3 tbsp whey protein (I used chocolate flavoured)
1 tsp powdered sugar for dusting (optional)

Method

Melt the dark chocolate in a heat proof bowl in a microwave for about 30 seconds. Stir.

Add in the peanut butter, protein powder and honey and mix well into a dough.

If the dough is too soft to roll keep in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. From the dough (if you haven't eaten all of it already) make small bite size balls.

Dust over some powdered sugar to make them look pretty.
