Peanut Butter Protein Balls. So this was my first time making these yummy little treats and I wasn’t quite sure if the kids were going to like them. Geez, I wasn’t even sure that I was going to like them. When we made these, we made two versions. One was slightly more kid friendly than the other. Making the other a little healthier. A mommy version if you will. Cody (the beautiful hand model in all my food posts) has made these before. We found that we do much better when we aren’t measuring things. Does that ever happen to you? As soon as you start following a recipe, all of the sudden it tastes very different from what you are used too? This was the case in making these PB delights.
The Ingredients you will need for these PB Protein Balls:
- Peanut Butter (Can be creamy or crunchy)
- PB2 Powder
- Protein Powder of your choice (vanilla or chocolate)
- Agave Nectar
- Chocolate (optional)
- Sprinkles (optional)
You will also need a mixing bowl, spatula, & measuring cups and spoons.
For the kid friendly PB Protein Balls mix all together 1 C. Oats, 1 C. PB, 1 scoop of protein powder, 1/4 C. honey. We used vanilla whey protein powder. Added some fun sprinkles and 2 squares of chopped semi sweet chocolate.
For the healthy mommy version we used PB2 powder to make 1 cup of peanut butter, then added 1/4 of Agave nectar, 1 C. oats, and added two scoops of chocolate soy protein powder.
We found these to be quite sticky, you can use any type of flour to make them less sticky. Once you mix it, roll them into balls and place them on parchment paper. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. Keep them in the fridge. They were a big hit with my kids. And a quick way to enjoy some extra protein for me. Hope you all enjoy!
