HEY! So its been awhile since I’ve shown you guys some balls, well today that ends. The 5 Minute Protein Cheesecake Balls I’m gonna show you today you don’t need an oven or microwave to make, they’re packed with protein, and pretty low carb if you want them to be!

Start this one with a large bowl and something to mix your ingredients with. I like using a hand mixer for this recipe.

Add into that bowl 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 scoops of protein powder, 1 tablespoon of sweetener, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar alternative, 3 tablespoons of coconut flour, and 1 tablespoon of melted butter.

You can use full, reduced or fat free cream cheese here depending on your calorie/macro needs. Fat free will be the lowest calorie option but highest carb.

Mix everything together for a minute or two with a hand mixer or until it thickens up. You can now add whatever you want into your mix like chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, and so on.

Take out or make some graham cracker crumbs by crushing up your graham crackers. You also want something to put your balls on, I prefer parchment paper so they don’t stick.

Cheesecake Balls

Shape your balls with your hands by rolling them around and follow by rolling them around in your graham cracker mix.

Throw them in the fridge for an hour or so and they’ll have an even better texture!

There you go, some no bake cheesecake balls that are seriously delicious! Let me know what you plan on adding into your balls or rolling them around in down below in the comments.

  • You can make a bunch and freeze them but they’ll usually last 4-5 days in the fridge!
