These raw, vegan, gluten free, and grain free Chocolate Copaiba Protein Balls are super easy to make, and they taste like brownies! If you are looking for a healthy, allergy-friendly dessert or protein-rich snack, these Chocolate Copaiba Protein Balls are a wonderful option to have in your refrigerator!
In addition, these Chocolate Copaiba Protein Balls have over seven grams of protein and five grams of fiber in each ball!
All that is needed to make this recipe is a food processor, and the Chocolate Copaiba Protein Balls stay good in the fridge until they are eaten, which makes this recipe a fantastic snack to store for those random sweet cravings! Additionally, if you want to substitute any of the ingredients like almond butter for the homemade nutella or chocolate/vanilla protein powder for the plain protein, it should work out great!
And, if you need a recipe for Homemade Nutella, I have one on the blog here!
I used doTERRA Copaiba essential oil in this recipe because I really like the benefits of copaiba and the taste is nice too. Copaiba essential oil supports the health of the cardiovascular, nervous, digestive, immune, and respiratory systems, and because of this, I try to include several drops into my daily life!
If you try this recipe, let me know! I would love to see your comments and ratings on this recipe. In addition, you can tag photos of your dishes for me to see on Instagram using #shalomhomestead.

- 1 cup raw cashews
- 10 medjool dates, soaked and pitted
- ½ cup hemp hearts
- ¼ cup nutella, hazelnut butter, or almond butter
- 1 scoop plain protein powder (about ¾ cup)
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- ¼ cup cup water the dates were soaked in
- ¼ cup cacao nibs
- 16 drops doTERRA Copaiba essential oil
- In a food processor, add all the ingredients except the water and cacao nibs and process until a thick dough forms.
- If more liquid is needed, pour in the ¼ cup water and process again. The dough should hold its shape molded.
- Last, pulse in the cacao nibs so that little chocolate bits are mixed throughout the dough.
- Using a 1.5 Tbsp cookie scoop, divide the dough into equal portions (about 20) and roll into smooth balls.
- Store in the refrigerator until eaten!
