Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls!
If you're anything like me, you must have an insane weakness for chocolate and peanut butter. The very mention of chocolate and I start salivating! How could I eat my two favourite things in the world, while staying healthy and even getting some protein into them? AND THEN IT CAME TO ME - chocolate & peanut butter protein balls. These small orbs of goodness will have you fighting not to eat them all at once, and best of all? They taste delicious and are a great healthy snack (though not everyday!)
Delicious protein balls - great for on the go!
CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN BALLS
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein powder ( I used optimum nutrition hydro-whey)
- 2 tbsp of pb2 (powdered peanut butter that you can purchase from iherb.com) otherwise use normal peanut butter
- 2 tsp of almond milk
- 1 tbsp of cacoa powder ( or cocoa powder if you don't have the raw powder)
shredded coconut or sprinkles
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, until it becomes creamy and thick. Ensure that the mixture is not too runny, otherwise it will not stick together. When happy with the consistency, roll the mixture into 8 equal balls. Then roll in sprinkles, shredded coconut, slithered almonds - whatever you'd like! Refrigerate for a few hours until set and then ENJOY!
Let me know how the recipe goes, and remember to tag me on Instagram (elliegettingfit) if you make them and post the picture on there!
