Here is the recipe:
( Via Yummy Mummy Kitchen )
First, I mixed the dry ingredients
|I only used 2 scoops of protein powder in my batch. It seemed like a lot of powder to add for my liking. |
I also used flaxseed instead of hemp seed (just because that's what I had at home).
Then the wet ingredients
Then I cut up some nuts and dark chocolate
|I ran out of pecans but I had walnuts in my cupboard. Yay! So I substituted with walnuts.|
Then roll them into golf-sized balls & place on a cookie tray
|The recipe yields 16 but I ended up with 19 (perhaps I made them too small).|
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and drizzle with melted dark chocolate, if you so please. Then, it's time to CHOW DOWN!
I chose not to drizzle them with chocolate (because I was lazy) but I bet they would taste even better with a little more chocolate ;)
These things tasted great! I'm excited to have them after a good workout or for a quick afternoon snack. Give them a try! I love eating food that I have prepared because I know exactly what I am putting into my body.
I hope you enjoy the recipe! Give it a try this weekend and let me know what you think.
Do you have a favorite snack recipe? I'd love to hear it! Please share.
