Okay, I know Christmas is over, but how could I not share these adorable protein, Christmas pudding balls? It’s never too early to start planning for next Christmas!

If you’re craving them now, no worries! They’re chocolate flavored, so decorate them however you’d like and enjoy them year round. There’s never a bad time for chocolate.

Not only are these mini Christmas pudding balls delicious, they also pack a powerful punch of protein from the peanut butter, black beans (I know, it sounds weird. It doesn’t have a “bean” taste, it just gives the balls have a super fudgy texture), and pea protein powder. They can also easily be made vegan.

And, if you still don’t believe me about the beans, my boyfriend/taste tester extraordinaire ate two of them before I could finish photographing them!
