Shakeology Poppers (Protein Balls)
These are our super duper yummy, healthy treats I make for the family; my boys ages 10 and 7 especially LOVE them!!
Yes the two with sprinkles are for my boys..,hey, they’re kids and they all love sprinkles! But besides the sprinkles , they will be getting protein, healthy fats, super foods, vitamins and minerals in every bite!! And they taste like BROWNIES! This is one healthy food that doesn’t taste healthy but I don’t hide that from them! They know exactly what’s in Shakeology! These make great after school snacks, put in their lunch box, use before sports as a snack. And I personally love them after dinner when that sweet craving hits!!
Here is the recipe:
- 4 Tablespoons Natural Peanut butter (I prefer the Teddie’s unsalted natural PB)
- ½ Cup Shakeology Chocolate Protein Powder (or one packet if you have them in the packets)
- 1/2 Cup Raw Honey (organic if possible)
- ½ Cup Quick Oats
- A few dash’s of Cinnamon.
- I also added in 1/2 cup crushed walnuts (this is optional).
DIRECTIONS: Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl. It may take some time to blend all of the ingredients together. If it’s too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it’s like a brownie batter texture. You may have to play around with the amount to get the texture you like. Next – Roll mixture into small individual balls and place on a wax sheet. Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each. Put in refrigerator, ENJOY!
NOTE: On this blog I also have the same recipe using crushed peanut butter powder like PB2, or Just Great Stuff. That will make them less fat since you will use a little less peanut butter. But I really liked the way these came out!! And 1-2 balls is not that much fat, and good amount of protein!
