I also made them with Vanilla LeanFit Protein and rolled in shredded coconut. My new favourite go to protein ball!!
Experimenting in making different protein bars and this one hits the spot for sure! Turned out nice and moist. Recipe is below 😊
Of course you could leave them plain
Or drizzle with chocolate of course!
•1/4 heaping cup Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (LeanFit Protein)
•3 Tbsp Vanilla Pea Protein Powder
•3 Tbsp Coconut Flour
•1/2 Cup Almond Milk
•30g Dark Chocolate (3 squares – Lindt 70% Cacao)
•1 tsp coconut oil
Mash all ingredients except dark chocolate and coconut oil together in bowl until you get dough texture (add more whey if too moist or milk if to dry) form onto parchment lined sheet creating about a 3/4 to 1 inch thick rectangular square. Place in fridge for about 30 minutes. Melt chocolate with double boiler or in microwave stirring in coconut oil once melted. Cut dough into 4 bars. Drizzle melted chocolate over bars with piping bag, corner of Ziploc bag or dip them. Store in fridge for up to 3 days … if they last that long!

Cheesecake for the win! And as a post workout snack even more of a win! This cheesecake is high in protein and low in carbs … if you ex the chocolate chips it would be even more low carb but then it wouldn’t be a swirl cheesecake 😝
Chocolate swirl protein cheesecake
•1C graham cracker crumbs (I used about 200g chocolate bunny grahams ground into very fine crumbs)
•3Tbsp coconut oil, soft
•1/2Cup dark chocolate chips (enjoy life foods)
•250g cream cheese
•1Cup 1% cottage cheese
•1¼Cup Plain 0% greek yogurt
•2tsp pure vanilla extract
•3 scoops (93g) vanilla whey protein powder (I used Kaizen Naturals)
Preheat oven to 300ºF. Prepare springform pan, grease and line sides with parchment if desired (greasing should work just fine). Make the crust, if you use bunny graham’s like me I pulsed them down to very fine crumbs in my food processor then added in the coconut oil. Press into springform pan evenly, set aside. Start the filling, melt the chocolate in double boiler or microwave and set aside to thicken slightly. In food processor mix remaining filling ingredients until smooth and pour ½ over crust. Drizzle ½ of melted chocolate and swirl with toothpick, pour remaining batter over then drizzle and swirl remaining chocolate on top. Bake 1 hour, turn off oven, prop door and let sit for another 45min-1hr. Place in fridge overnight.
