Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Bliss Balls

This recipe for Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Bliss Balls is absolutely delicious. This is such a simple recipe to make and trust me, if you are a peanut butter fan, you are going to love these. These are are fairly subtle in flavor though, so even if you aren’t a huge PB fan, I still suggest you try them.

These bliss balls are really versatile. They would be ideal for a wonderful healthy treat for after a workout or are ideal to eat simply as a snack. You could make half a batch if you choose to but I do suggest making the full recipe and freezing some for later. Not that they will last that long.

Feel free to add more protein powder (WPI) powder if you want to up the amount of protein in the recipe. You may want to omit some almond meal or add a tiny bit more water to make sure the recipe is going to still be the right consistency to roll into balls.

Nutritional Values

I’ve boosted the levels of Omega-3’s in this recipe to counterbalance the Omega-6 fatty acids that are in the nuts, and have also added some pepita seeds and sunflower seeds to up the nutritional value of the recipe. So these balls not only taste amazing but are good for you as well. They are perfect for Keto and LCHF, as well as anyone who is watching their sugar and carb intake.

I often try to make my bliss ball recipes as healthy as they can be, so I was trying to develop a recipe that had more ingredients in it than just peanut butter and Whey Protein Isolate (WPI.)  I was really surprised at just how well these flavours went together, especially when you have flavor combination of vanilla, peanut butter and all of the other nuts and seeds, that I added to the recipe. Amazingly, it all blends really well together to create an absolutely delicious bliss ball. These babies are going to be a common feature in my freezer from now on. I just need to make sure I don’t eat too many of them…..

Recipe Notes

You can omit the vanilla flavored WPI but will have to add 1-2 tablespoons of preferred sweetener in its place and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract. You might have to add an additional tablespoon of almond meal as well to stiffen the mixture a little bit more. The WPI does taste great in these though and also increases the protein in this recipe.
