Protein balls made from chocolate & peanut butter
I love adding peanut butter to this recipe because while it’s relatively high in fat (115 calories per tablespoon), it’s the good variety – unsaturated!
Peanuts are a very good source of vegetable protein and have healthy amounts of vitamins B and E as well as magnesium, iron and zinc.
These balls also contain raw cocoa, chia seeds, flax seeds, and maple syrup.
Makes about 16 balls
- 300 grams of natural peanut butter
- 125 grams of gluten-free oats
- 15 grams of raw cocoa powder
- 30 grams of maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed
- 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds
1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until well blended and combined.
2. Roll the mixture into balls about the size of walnuts.
3. As you roll it, press the mixture firmly to compact it.
4. Place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
