Healthy Pregnancy Snacks: Chocolate Protein Balls

These delicious chocolate protein balls are excellent healthy postpartum snacks to boost your energy level and help repair and tone muscle after pregnancy.

Eating food rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients is essential for healing and strengthening your body after pregnancy and birth; eating healthy postpartum snacks will help restore muscle tone and supply much-needed energy when caring for a new baby and enduring sleepless nights.

These chocolate protein balls provide energy with a chocolate taste without the guilt, making them one of my favourite healthy, low-calorie pregnancy and postpartum snacks that are sugar-free yet tasty.

Healthy Pregnancy Snacks: Chocolate Protein Balls

We use specific ingredients to make these chocolate protein balls and add whey protein powder to nourish your body, improve lean muscle tone, and help your baby’s healthy development if you are breastfeeding.

The almonds and mixed nut butter contain healthy fats, which improve pregnancy and postpartum brain fog (aka baby brain), plus help your baby’s brain develop healthily. Nuts are a good protein source to improve your muscle tone, and almonds are rich in vitamin E to prevent wrinkles and smooth skin.

These chocolate protein balls make a handy portable snack to eat when you are out and about with your baby or to munch when you are working or feeding your baby.

They take 10 minutes to make, and storing them in batches in the freezer means you have more time with your baby or do baby preparations.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

100g blanched almonds
100g desiccated coconut
100g dates
50g raw cacao powder
2 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons chocolate or vanilla whey protein powder (Tera’s Organic Whey Protein is a solid choice for pregnant women)
1 1/2 tablespoons of mixed nut butter

How to make:
1. Chop the almonds in a food processor for 1-2 minutes.
2. First, add the coconut oil, then add the remaining ingredients. Combine all the ingredients together in the food processor until you get a soft consistency.
4. Roll the mixture into small, bite-sized balls., about 2.5 cm in diameter.
5. Put in the freezer for 30 minutes.
6. Remove the chocolate balls from the freezer and transfer them to the fridge until you are ready to eat them!
