5-Ingredient Fudgey Butter Balls

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

I can’t stop making these protein balls! They’re so darn delicious and SO EASY to make. They seriously come together in, like, 5 minutes!

These protein balls were inspired by my love of chocolate and hitting my macros goals for the day. I’m definitely not a stickler for “the numbers,” but these babies clock in as a well-balanced, macro-friendly treat and, bonus, they’re so easy to make – just whip up a batch when the craving strikes!

Fudgy Butter Balls

  • 2 tbsp (28g) butter
  • 1 scoop (30g) chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. In a sauce pan on medium heat, melt butter and honey and then stir in chocolate protein powder and sea salt. Remove from heat and roll batter into 4 balls. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating.

I used SFH chocolate, but any chocolate-flavored protein powder will work.

  1. Yum, these sound fantastic. I’d love to try them, however, without the honey to make them keto-friendly. The pinch of salt must give them such a great twist. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I was thinking about making these and then realized you have cocoa powder in the ingredients but don’t mention where you use the cocoa powder. I am not sure if it’s mixed in or if you roll the dough in it and I can’t tell from the pictures. Thanks.

  3. This is amazing. I love your blog and your recipes. It has awakened a love of cooking in me… and recently made a variation on this recipe that my sister-in-law sent me. I take pictures of my dishes too! I just send them to my friends to make them jealous, don’t worry about any blog competition from me! HA! They were delicious, but my hubs and I both thought they needed something. He looked at me and said “those would be perfect with some sea salt on top.” They were so yummy! I’m excited to try your recipe with the addition of brown sugar.Thanks for posting
