No-Bake Protein Balls
Healthy Snack Recipe
(The very healthy version of a no-bake PB Chocolate cookie)
3 Tablespoons Natural Peanut butter (This is my fav and it has flax seeds in it! Naturally More Peanut Butter)
Don’t have PB2 just use 1/2 cup of your favorite Natural Peanut Butter. I have not tried with almond butter or any other nut butters. (natural peanut butter ingredients should read: peanuts, salt)
½ Cup Chocolate Vegan or regular Protein powder or .Shakeology. I like Vegan chocolate Shakeology Protein Powder (What’s Shakeology?)
3 Tablespoons Raw Honey (I like Honey Stinger as they support cycling and endurance athletes. Or any local honey will do.
½ Cup Quick Oats or Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats
variations– or if you want a little crunch try Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Seed Cereal
instead of the oats. Add unsweetened coconut this is my favorite!!!
DIRECTIONS: Mix PB2 with water until it’s a paste like consistency. Mix all ingredients, including the PB2 mixture together in a mixing bowl. It make take some time to blend all of the ingredients together. If it’s too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it’s a pretty dry/crumbly texture. Next – Roll mixture into small individual balls (about a ping-pong ball size) and place on a wax sheet. Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each. Put in freezer until firm.
