This recipe is gluten-free, super simple and can easily be vegan should you use a quality rice or pea protein powder.

Don't be put off by the salt... it's incredible! This recipe is the one that I make for events (and at home!) and they never fail to impress so give them a try for yourself!

WHICH PROTEIN?

Plant or animal based proteins, go with what you feel like. Should you choose whey – go with a clean and unprocessed whey protein isolate (WPI), the options are varied though this is the awesome product I use.

However, these balls are easily made without the protein powder so don't feel that you need to add it. In fact, many of us consume more than enough protein so be smart and keep it unique to your needs.
