Chocolicious protein balls

It's true that the majority of people who go to the gym these days take some form of protein supplement in order to help their muscles repair and grow, and I am making it my job to find the tastiest ways to incorporate protein in my diet, starting with these delicious protein balls... 

You will need: 
3/4 Cup Rice of Flour (or any other type) 
1/4 Cup Cacao Powder (no added sugar) 
1/2 Cup Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Chocolate Brownie) 
3 Tbsp Crunchy or Smooth Peanut Butter 
6 Tbsp Soya or Nut Milk
3 Tbsp Honey

Topping Ideas: 
Chopped Hazelnuts 
Dark Chocolate 
Cacao Powder

-Mix all of the dry ingredients together. 
-Add the peanut butter, milk and honey, then mix. 
-The mixture should form a dough like texture so add milk or flour as needed to get this consistency. 
-Scoop the mixture with a tablespoon and roll into a ball with your hands. Do this until all of the mixture has been used. 

Here are the instructions for the different toppings...

For chopped hazelnuts: Place a good amount of chopped hazelnuts in a bowl and with a fork or toothpick dip the protein balls in until completely covered. 

For dark chocolate: Heat the chocolate in a glass bowl over pan of hot water until melted. Place the bowl of chocolate to the side and use a toothpick or fork to dip each ball into the chocolate. 

For the cacao powder: Place the powder in a bowl and with a fork or toothpick dip each ball into the powder until covered. 

Once you have topped the protein balls, place them on a non stick tray and keep them in the fridge for 20 mins. Store them in a container in the fridge for the best consistency.
