I don’t know about you, but sometimes (ok, very often) I crave chocolate and peanut butter. It’s, like, a heavenly mash up of goodness. But I don’t love all the unhealthy things that come in a Reese’s that makes my stomach angry with the rest of my body.
So- I swear by these no-bake protein balls. Super easy to make & they satisfy that mid-afternoon sweetness craving:
8 tablespoons PB2 (powdered peanut butter)
3 tablespoons natural peanut or almond butter
1/3 cup chocolate Shakeology protein powder
3 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 cup steel cut or quick cooking oats
Mix PB2 with water until it’s a paste-like consistency. Mix all ingredients, including the PB2 mixture. If it’s too sticky, sprinkle in more protein powder so it’s a dry/crumbly texture.
Roll mixture into small balls & place on wax sheet. Put in freezer until firm (makes about 12, 1-ounce balls).
