Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Protein Balls

Thanks to its perfect balance of salty and sweet, dark chocolate and sea salt is always a winning flavour combination at Neat HQ. These protein balls are also made using chunky mixed nuts and whey protein to make these a more satiating, energy-boosting snack. 


Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Protein Balls



Start by mixing the dates, cocoa powder, protein, sea salt and almond butter in a food processor. Add in the honey 1 tbsp at a time. 

Once the dates start to break down, add in the nuts and the dark chocolate and mix until they are well combined but there is still a chunkiness to the texture. 

Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls and store them in the fridge for the best consistency. 



(makes about 14 balls)

  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 serving Neat Nutrition Plant Protein (Chocolate)
  • 1/2 cup dates
  • 1 tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 cup mixed nuts, we used hazelnut, pecan, walnut and almond 
  • 6 squares of dark chocolate
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • A generous amount of sea salt, we used about 1 small tsp
