Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls (No bake)

Posted on Feb 26, 2013 in Breakfast, Cooking, Featured

These protein balls are a great pre/post workout snack, plus they taste like you’re getting a treat!  They come together in just minutes and you can store them in an air tight container in the fridge and have your workout snacks for a week.  If you like these check out our cookie butter energy balls!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls

(about 22 servings)

1 cup of peanut butter (chunky or smooth)

1/2-3/4 cup of honey (I start with 1/2 cup and if its too dry add more)

1 cup of oats

1/2 cup of rice krispies cereal (optional-you could just use more oats)

1 cup of Arbonne protein powder

Melt peanut butter and honey in small bowl.  In a large bowl combine oats, rice krispies cereal, and protein powder.  Stir in peanut butter and honey until well combined.  Using a tablespoon sized scoop put balls into an airtight container and store in refrigerator.  (if they’re hard to form place bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes or so until they firm up.)

Cookie Butter Energy Balls (No-Bake)

Posted on Feb 22, 2013 in Breakfast, Cooking, Featured

Have you tried cookie butter yet??  I had seen it quite a few times while shopping at Trader Joe’s, but hadn’t tried it until recently.  It is so good!  It has the flavor of biscuit cookies or gingerbread, with the texture of peanut butter.  It comes in smooth and chunky and both are amazing!   I especially like it on graham crackers or just straight from the jar. ;)

These energy balls are great for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up.   I hope you get the chance to try them out and enjoy them as much as we do.

1 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats

1 cup of sweetened coconut, toasted

1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips

1/2 cup of cookie butter, crunchy or smooth

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

2 tablespoons of flax seed meal

1/3 cup of honey

1 teaspoon of vanilla

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Cover and refrigerate for a half an hour or so until it firms up and is easy to shape.  Use a small scoop and your hands to form small balls.  Place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.  Will last up to a week.
