Chocolate-Peanut Butter Rice Cake Protein Balls

I can’t stop eating these things!! They’re seriously so delicious. They taste almost exactly like chocolate sugar wafer cookies. OMGSOGOOD.


And the great thing about these protein balls is that there’s some automatic portion control built in, so if you eat the entire batch, like I typically do, you won’t wreck your diet for the day. The recipe only makes 4 protein balls and each one has approximately 75 calories, 3.5g fat, and 3g protein. And they’re actually pretty big despite my photos not making them look that way.


Directions: Crush rice cake with hands and place in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients listed above and combine well. (I used the back of a spoon to really mush everything together.)


Divide batter into four sections and roll each of them with your hands into a ball. Refrigerate or eat immediately.



  1. We flew with my daughter when she was 7 months-it was actually way easier than I thought. Just make sure he has a pacifier/bottle during take off and landing (landing was worse). Puffs are magical distractions. If you have willing people behind you, peek a boo is awesome too. Try to keep him up until the flight so he wants to sleep! Otherwise-just roll with it and keep your expectations low 🙂

  2. this sounds awesome! i may have to try a version of these.. its really hard to get certain ingredients here in spain (unless you want to sell your firstborn to pay for it #expatproblems) but i think with a little bit of cocoa powder, pea protein and some luck i should be able to make it work.. great idea! i never thought about using rice cakes like this 🙂
