Chocolate Pistachio Protein Balls

2 Servings / 25 minutes



170 grams Dark Chocolate (roughly chopped)

¼ cup Cocoa Powder

1 ½ tbsps Vanilla Protein Powder

2/3 cups Sunflower Seed Butter

1 cup Pistachios (removed from shell, divided)



  1. Add the dark chocolate, cocoa powder, protein powder, sunflower seed butter, and half the pistachios to a food processor and blend until well mixed and sticky. Add more sunflower seed butter if the mixture is too dry, or more pistachios if too wet.
  2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and form into even balls with your hands, roughly one-inch in diameter.
  3. Crush the remaining pistachios and coat each ball evenly. Store in the fridge or freezer until ready to enjoy.



Leftovers: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to seven days or in the freezer for three months.

Serving Size: One serving is equal to one ball.

More Flavor: Add vanilla extract.
