I’ve shared a couple Onnit Hemp Force recipes on this blog in the past, but they’ve all been for shakes that you drink. After checking out Onnit’s official blog, I uncovered a Hemp Force recipe, but not for something that you drink. This particular recipe is for something Onnit calls Hemp Force Power Balls!
My favorite type of recipe is a no-bake recipe, and that’s exactly what this one is, though you will need to use the stove briefly. Using only six ingredients, the recipe is also vegan, gluten-free, packed with protein, and doesn’t require you to add any sugar. You might even have all the ingredients in your cupboards already.
- a half cup of creamy peanut butter
- one tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil
- six scoops of Hemp Force protein powder
- a half cup of almond milk
- a half cup of coconut flakes
- three cups of brown rice cereal
To prepare, you’ll need to grab a large saucepan and melt the peanut butter and coconut oil together. Using a separate bowl, combine the almond milk and protein powder and mix it into a thick paste. Then, add the protein powder mixture to the saucepan and mix again. Next, fold in the coconut and cereal and mix everything together. With your hands, roll the mixture into balls measuring one to two inches in width. That’s it! Store in an airtight container and eat them before working out or to curb your appetite between meals.
Obviously you can use whatever brand of peanut butter or unrefined coconut oil (though Onnit does have its own) and you can substitute brown rice cereal for Rice Krispies and the almond milk for regular milk if it’s of no issue to you, but the one ingredient that must remain is Onnit Hemp Force protein powder. This is because unlike other hemp protein powders, Hemp Force actually tastes good. If you make this recipe using any other type of protein powder, it likely won’t turn out too well so keep that in mind.
Again, this recipe was originally posted on the Onnit Blog, so all credit goes to them.
