No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein balls - (Great with Shakeology)

The very healthy version of a no-bake PB Chocolate cookie...

INGREDIENTS:
8 Tablespoons PB2 (low fat, high protein powdered peanut butter - details below)
3 Tablespoons Natural Peanut butter (w/flax seeds is the best!)
½ Cup Shakeology Protein Powder (Haven't tried this with another brand of protein powder)
3 Tablespoons Raw Honey
½ Cup Quick Oats

DIRECTIONS:
Mix PB2 with water until it’s a paste like consistency. Mix all ingredients, including the PB2 mixture together in a mixing bowl. It make take some time to blend all of the ingredients together. If it's too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it's a pretty dry/crumbly texture.

Next - Roll mixture into small individual balls (about a ping-pong ball size) and place on a wax sheet. Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each. Put in freezer until firm.

NUTRITION: (serving size 1 ball)
Calories: 80
Carbs: 10g
Fat: 2g
Protein: 7g

(now...to be honest..these taste even better when made with 6 tablespoons of PB2 and a 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter, but the calories and fat are higher. If you find the recipe above is too...well....chalky tasting...add the extra peanut butter and do a few more jumping jacks!)

PB2 is AMAZING for baking and protein shakes! 1.5 grams of fat, no additives..they just strip out the fat! When you order be sure to get a case as you'll be going through it fast!

Shakeology is the only protein powder I suggest. Not that others aren't great...I just happen to know the science behind this one and when my friend Chalene's doctor endorses it, then I'm on board. You can get Shakeology from me. :) http://www.tinyurl.com/Shakeology2011
