Since I made them for the second time in about a week, I thought I’d take some pictures while making these perfect healthy protein snacks to share the recipe with you guys. It’s super simple, takes about 10 minutes to make and they are absolutely delicious!
You will only need four ingredients: smooth peanut butter, vanilla protein powder, oats and flex seeds! (And chocolate to cover it)
All you have to do is to mix all the ingredients in a bowl. I started with a spoon then finished off using my hands. When the dough is set, form little balls and place them on a plate. I recommend making tiny little balls, because if you’re not a peanut butter addict -like I am- then bigger balls might be a bit too much, haha!
Put the plate with the balls to chill in the fridge and meanwhile melt some dark chocolate in a cup. I added a splash of milk when it melted, but the chocolate in itself would also work just fine.
Then take the balls one by one and dip them into the chocolate. Some of them I dipped only until halfway, but some of them I just dropped into the chocolate and swirld it around then placed it back on the plate using a spoon.
When all the balls are covered in chocolate for your liking, place the plate back to the fridge and let it chill for at least 2-3 hours. And that’s it, you have the perfect high protein snack! Be careful though, it is healthy but peanut butter still has lots of calories and it’s so easy to make a plate of these sneaky balls disappear without even noticing!
Let me know how it turned out if you give it a try! 🙂
