Vanilla Peppermint Protein Balls

Vanilla Peppermint Protein Balls

I am always looking for ways to combine protein snacks with scrumptious desserts. I bought candy canes today for the Christmas tree and decided to use this as my inspiration! These vanilla peppermint protein balls are a cross between a protein bar and a dessert…so feel free to eat them at any point in the day. If you are trying to lose weight, do without the candy cane topping or just limit the amount.

  • Gather all ingredients and combine all ingredients (except the candy canes) in a large bowl. I use my hands at the end to ensure that the “protein dough” is mixed well. If you feel the dough is too dry, simply add a tiny bit of water to the mixture and mix well until you reach desired texture. The dough should resemble cookie dough in texture. The size of the protein powder scoop is different for everyone, therefore you may have slightly different textures.
I use raw protein, therefore the color here is tan. The typical whey protein powder will give you a nice white dough:)

  • Place the dough in the freezer while you crush the candy canes in the food processor. Let sit in freezer fro at least 5 minutes.
Do not crush completely to powder!

  • Remove the bowl of vanilla peppermint protein dough from the freezer and roll the dough into balls. I made about 10 large balls from this recipe.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper and place the balls on the paper.
  • Dip the top of each ball in the candy cane crumbs and place back on the cookie sheet/paper.

  • Place the balls back into the freezer for at least 15 minutes and then enjoy! Store in a sealed container in the freezer for best results:)
