Chocolate Protein Balls with Tahini Recipe

Protein is great for you - powering you through the day, keeping you feeling full, boosting your whole body. If you’re doing any kind of exercise, from a walk to a serious weights session, protein is there to help your muscles repair and build stronger. But let’s be honest, things that are good for you can often be a teensy bit dull and feel like a chore.

So it's time for a game changer – vegan chocolate protein balls with tahini.

They take just 15 minutes to rustle up and zero minutes to cook, are utterly delicious and, importantly, pack a nutritional punch.

Here’s our vegan protein balls recipe.

12 Protein Balls
Prep Time
15 Mins


All you need to make 12 are:

  •       60g MIGHTY Chocolate Protein Powder
  •       200g rolled oats
  •       50g desiccated coconut
  •       2 tbsp chocolate chips
  •       1 tbsp tahini
  •       3 tbsp maple syrup



In a mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients apart from the maple syrup. Then, slowly add the syrup and mix to bring everything together. Note: If the mixture looks a little dry, they you might need to add some more syrup.


Using clean hands, form the mixture into 12 x balls slightly smaller than a golf ball.


When you’ve used up all the mixture, store your no-bake protein balls in an airtight container, place in the fridge and consume within one month. Although, if you’re anything like us, they’ll probably be gone in a few days.

How to make protein balls

It really couldn’t be easier and it’s something the kids would love to have a go at.


If your protein balls keep falling apart, don’t worry, that’s easy to sort. Just add a bit more syrup, water or plant-based milk. This will help bind everything together.
