    I quite like the bounce protein balls but even buying in bulk they work out pretty expensive. I found this recipe online. They taste pretty good but the end result is pretty crumbly unlike the Bounce ones which are exceptionally chewy. Any advice on what I could addd to improve the consistency of these. Want to avoid loading them with sugar / syrup derivatives.

    Make your own bounce protien balls

    Now I’m not a nutrionist, but calling something that’s made out of about 70% Peanut butter a “protein ball” is just to make you feel better about eating spoonfuls of peanut butter, isn’t it? 😐

    Blitz some dates or raisins and add in – binds and adds a bit of moisture.

    Peanut butter is actually pretty good.

    Lot’s of peanuts, unsaturated fats and not much else….

    to make you feel better about eating spoonfuls of peanut butter, isn’t it?

    I feel great about eating spoonfuls of peanut butter, do so several times a day. Really energy dense, brilliant stuff.

    These are pretty good – I used peanut butter instead of almond butter (cos I’m a cheapskate) and rolled ’em in desiccated coconut so they’re not too sticky to pick up.

    like the look of the Caco balls as an energy bar substitute for training days. Dates, raisins etc.

    This is the ingredient list from the branded version
    Peanuts (34%), Brown Rice Malts Syrup, Whey Protein Isolate (from Milk) (16%), Concentrated Grape Juice, Gluten Free Grain Dextrins (from Brown Rice), Whey Protein Concentrate (from Milk) (5%), Tapioca Starch, Water, Whey Protein Hydrolysate (from Milk) (1.5%), Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt, Antioxidant (Natural Mixed Tocopherols), Sesame Seeds, Stabiliser (Calcium Carbonate), Emulsifier (Sunflower Lecithin).

    Any idea which one is adding the chewiness?

    A mix of the Tapioca starch, malt syrup, grape juice and emulsifier, probably.

    As a side note go for peanut butter without palmoil if possible

    like this but it might defeat the object of low cost alternative.

    Meridian nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew). Available in 1kg tubs from Holland and Barret. It’s just nuts, nothing else

    Everything else pales in comparison
