"I started making these protein energy balls when my doctor said I had low blood sugar and needed to add more protein to my diet. A great afternoon pick-me-up for kids and adults. You can take them to your gluten-free and raw friend's parties."

  1. Melt coconut oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add rice flour; cook and stir until toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chocolate and stir until just melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Place sesame seeds in a small soup bowl.
  3. Place almond butter, hemp seeds, cocoa powder, protein powder, honey, and salt in another bowl. Stir with a stiff silicone spatula. Add the rice flour mixture and stir to combine.
  4. Measure out about 16 balls using a small ice cream scoop or 2 tablespoons. Roll between palms to shape balls; roll in the bowl of sesame seeds to coat. Roll again to secure the seeds. Place balls in a baking dish and cover with plastic wrap.
  5. Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 4 hours. Serve chilled or at room temperature.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Wheat germ, chia seeds, or flax seeds can be substituted for hemp seed. Nonfat milk powder can be substituted for whey protein powder.
  • Coconut oil and baking chocolate are used to firm consistency when chilled. Feel free to use chocolate chips.
