No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls

No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls – These no-bake Nutella protein balls are deliciously fudgy, chocolatey, and full of chocolate chips!

No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls piled into two stacked ramekins on a marble background.

Today, I bring you another scrumptious protein snack recipe – my No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls! Adapted from my No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Balls, these delightful little bites are so fudgy, and packed full of chocolate hazelnut flavour.

These are very chocolatey on their own, you can certainly omit the chocolate chips if you’d like, but I love the milk chocolate pieces paired with the chocolate hazelnut. These are heavenly.

How to make No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls

Ingredients you’ll need:

  • Nutella
  • skimmed milk powder
  • coconut flour
  • almond milk
  • chocolate chips

To make these Nutella bites, mix together the Nutella, skimmed milk powder, coconut flour, almond milk, and vanilla extract until combined. If the mixture seems too dry, add more almond milk, or if too wet, add more flour.

Fold in the chocolate chips, then roll the dough into 12 balls. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to eat.

So quick and easy, yet SO delicious!

The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.

Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

These No-Bake Nutella Protein Balls are:

  • super quick and easy to make
  • creamy and fudgy
  • loaded with flavour
  • perfect for a delicious, healthy-ish snack!

How long will these Nutella balls last? These balls can stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Can I freeze these Nutella balls? Yes, they also freeze well for up to 2 – 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

Hi Marshall, I'm Marsha...I mean Hi Marsha, I'm Marshall! Oh, now I'm confused...lololol! Anyways... Request input, possible substitutions: instead of coconut flour and almond milk, how about tapioca flour and regular nonfat milk? also, maybe a tip on the best way/ tool to mix it with? These are an ideal snack for a diabetic such as myself. I used to eat the peanut butter version, only I can't process peanut butter any more, so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Sorry about the bad joke but it was fun in person with moms church friend Marsha. ;-) Thanks for revisiting this old one!

Hi Marshall! You can definitely use tapioca flour (same amount) along with nonfat milk. I simply use a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon to mix all of the ingredients together :) Enjoy!
