No Bake Chocolate Protein Balls (Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free)

no bake protein bar

Creating this no-bake chocolate protein balls recipe (that will please both vegan and paleo palettes, by the way) stirred up some hilarious mental images of the classic SNL Schweddy Balls skit.

All jokes aside, these protein balls are made for clean eaters. They contain 100% real food ingredients, no added sugar, and are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and paleo-friendly.

Best of all, there’s no baking required. You just mix all the ingredients together, roll the dough into balls, and refrigerate it.

My Schweddy balls (sorry, couldn’t resist) are a guilt-free dessert too. One ball will only set you back 122 calories, while delivering a healthy balance of carbs, good fats, and protein.

Let’s talk PROBIOTICS😄🦠
✻
If you check our the ingredients on your package of Pure Food Protein, you’ll see GANEDENBC30 (Bacillus Coagulans) PROBIOTIC at the end of the list✔️
✻
The name may make it sound complicated, but it’s really not! 😄 The probiotic found in Pure Food Protein is made by an all-natural, soy-free, GMO-free natural fermentation process and has NO added fillers or gums 🙌
✻
Unfortunately, most probiotics added to food products are not effective because they either:
a) need to be refrigerated 🥶 
b) have a short shelf life 💀 
c) can’t survive stomach acid so never reach your small intestine 😿
d) don’t stay in your digestive tract long enough to be effective ❌
✻
Because we at Pure Food want you to get all the benefits from every single ingredient, we made sure our probiotic checks off on all of the following:
✻
1. It’s the world’s only patented, shelf-stable probiotic strain of its kind to be granted GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status from the FDA.
✻
2. It’s an all-natural, vegan, allergen-free, non-GMO probiotic supplement that’s free of calories, gluten, and animal products. Most probiotics on the market use inhumane animal products and/or GMO ingredients like soy or corn as fillers.
✻
3. It’s backed by research studies that show its effectiveness in helping with bloating, gas and abdominal pain; improving digestion; increasing utilization of minerals and proteins; and supporting immune function.
✻
4. It survives stomach acid much more effectively than traditional probiotic strains (10x more than yogurt cultures!). Other products will try to impress you with their “billions of cells” of good bacteria; however, less than 6 percent of most probiotic strains ever make it through your stomach acid.
