Chocolate Cookie Dough Protein Balls

A Reader Recipe: Double Chocolate Cookie Dough Protein Balls

Here's a sweet Paleo-friendly treat from reader AllieNic. She posted this cookie dough ball recipe in our Healthy Recipe group.

I was totally inspired by Heather’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Balls, that I decided to make my own — a little different, of course because that’s how I roll. I grain-free-i-fied them, making them a little more Paleo. Not totally though, because I still used whey protein powder — but it’s hydrolyzed whey — if that makes them better. You could easily replace the whey protein powder with unsweetened cocoa powder and they’d be just as ah-mah-zing.

Ingredients
9 dates, pitted
1 1/4 cup raw almonds
3/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt
3 scoops chocolate whey protein, OR 2 to 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips
