Peanut Butter Protein Balls …I did them my way

I am on a quest for healthy snack ideas and I need to work on item #47 of my list; so yesterday I picked up Abs Oxygen Magazine Collector’s issue. Oxygen Magazine is my favorite fitness mag., I think it gives good practical exercise and nutritional advice for all levels of fitness.  I also dream of one day being published in Oxygen as to how or why they would have me is still yet to be determined in my head.

Now back to the healthy snack quest, I did find a recipe that I thought would curb my cravings for something sweet or the between meals hunger pangs that I sometimes get.

This is a pic of the actual recipe in the magazine:

Here are the changes that I made:

1 cup prunes

½ cup warm water

¼ cup organic Peanut butter

1 cup 100% CFM Whey Protein Isolate powder unflavored

¼  ground flaxseed

¼ tsp cinnamon

1/8 sea salt

½ cup dried blueberries

½ cup Organic unsweetened coconut

Dark chocolate shavings

The dough will be too sticky to work with, I think it’s because of the oil in the organic peanut butter so you will have to put in the freezer  for 20 minutes to chill, then you can roll into balls. I rolled my balls in part flaxseed, part coconut and chocolate shavings.

My Balls:

The recipe states that you can make 38 balls; but I only got 24 out of my batch. Also my balls do not look as pretty as the ones in the magazine but they sure are tasty!

I think this weekend I will also try the Seared Steak & Swiss Chard with Harissa on pg.56  it looks delish. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Cheers!
