High Protein Snack Balls

High Protein Snack Balls

If you’re looking for an easy, no bake, high protein snack that tastes amazing then you’ve come to the right place!

I’ve collaborated with the gorgeous Hannah from Wedges and Weights (again!) to show you a super tasty snack idea!

Each ball comes in at 5g of protein – so 3-4 of these would be the perfect option for post-workout.. do let us know if you try it!

P.S. Check out out Q & A video [here]! 


  • 250g cottage cheese
  • 3 tbsp (52g) nut butter
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 cup (106g) rolled oats
  • 1 scoop (25g) whey protein*
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • desiccated coconut for rolling!

*We used chocolate brownie whey protein 

Protein No Bake Balls

  • Method
  1. Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  2. Roll into 15 golf-ball sizes balls – rolling each in desiccated coconut before placing on a tray or plate lined with greaseproof paper.
  3. Pop in the freezer for 40 minutes.. and enjoy!

    Delicious and super easy to make. Cottage cheese in protein balls sounds weird but it works!

    I’m in Lovvvvvveeeee with these <3 You have to try them, so good for a healthy little shot of the good stuff. i like to have then if i'm feeling slumped in the avo. I have a massive sweet tooth so this also helps with that little devil inside 😛 If your anything like me, make sure you store them ASAP otherwise you could end up feeling quite sicky 😀 Enjoy xoxox

    Honest to God, it’s like eating truffles! These are delicious and so easy to make. When my trainer suggested I add cottage cheese to my diet I’d no idea how I’d manage it because I’m really not a fan so this recipe is perfect for me! Thank you ladies 😉

    Once they have been in the freezer, do you take out and refrigerate or keep in the freezer until ready to eat? Just don’t know if they will be suitable to take to work as i will not have a fridge or a freezer at hand. hope you can help. Thanks Helen
