Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Balls



The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is a favorite of mine. This recipe is incredibly easy to make, and never fails to taste amazing.


CHOCOLATE + PEANUT BUTTER = UNBELIEVABLY TASTY... math, right?

These may be tasty, but they don't spike your blood sugar like a peanut butter cup would. In fact, these scrumptious little balls are quite nutritious! Each ball provides a significant amount of protein and healthy fats.

Hopefully you enjoy these as much as I do! I mean really... how could you not like these?




Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Makes about 4 1-inch balls

Ingredients:
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (around 32 grams--> mine was 100 cals per scoop)
  • 1 full dropper of liquid stevia (or 1 tablespoon honey)
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter 
  • Up to 1 tablespoon water* (more or less depending on desired consistency)
  • 2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips
Method:
  • Stir together protein powder, liquid stevia, and peanut butter in a small bowl. Stir until very well combined.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips and form into 4 balls. 
You may add more honey or liquid stevia instead; however, this will increase your calorie count.
