This is a recipe for peanut butter chocolate protein balls, which is a delicious and healthy on-the-go snack. It’s easy to make, but requires significant cooling time. We make these snacks to stave off hunger during our busy daily schedules, and we never have to feel guilty since they’re good for us, too!

Prep time: 15 - 20 min

cool time: about 1 hour - 4 hours

Skill Level: Beginner

Serving size: about 10 to 14 (depends on how big/ small you make them)

These are the ingredients and supplies you'll need:

  • 2 mixing bowls
  • 2 mixing spoons
  • 1 small spoon
  • ½ cup of Creamy or crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons of Flax seeds
  • ⅓ cup of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of chocolate flavored protein powder (you can likely use any flavor you already have on hand)
  • ⅓ cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of rolled oats
  • Wax paper paper towels or gloves (in case things get a little messy)
  • If you want a little extra flavoring, you can also use 1 tablespoon of PB2 powdered peanut butter

Step 6:

With the small spoon, get a spoonful of the mixture and form balls with your hands. You can form these to your desired size, but it will form easier if rolled in a one inch diameter. Place these balls on the plastic wrap when you’re done. For easy cleanup, gloves or towels are helpful.

Step 7:

Put the balls in the fridge overnight (or if you are in a hurry for these amazing treats, you can put them in the freezer until firm, which usually takes about 1-2 hours)

Step 8:

In the morning, take the balls out of the fridge. Enjoy!

Sounds like a great snack for those of us trying to be healthy (but can't put down the chocolate entirely).
