I finally made Fitnessista’s chocolate peanut butter protein balls….aka-AMAZEBALLS!!
These little babies were good!!! The perfect filling snack for class, the gym, a midnight snack….
Here’s how you make them!
- 2 T of vanilla protein powder
- 2 T of nut butter, like natural peanut butter
- 2 T of shredded coconut
- 1 T of maple syrup or honey, you can also use agave ( I used sugar free maple syrup)
- a pinch of salt, cinnamon
In a food processor (or blender), pulse together the protein powder, nut butter and coconut. Pulse till it looks like wet sand. Like this.
Next add in the honey or syrup, salt, cinnamon and sweetener. I used sweetened coconut flakes, so I didn’t add any sweetner….just sugar free maple syrup. Pulse this together a few more times until everything comes together. Then add in a small handful of dark chocolate chips.
Pulse the chips in just enough to break them up.
Now, it’s time to roll the mixture into a ball shape.
If the mixture doesn’t form well, maybe add a little more nut butter or syrup!
Keep these in a container in the fridge. Eat for snack or a small dessert!
