It's a 3 pm or an 8 pm thing. I want something sweet, but I know that sugar does nothing positive for my body. It's not that I NEVER have anything with sugar in it, I'm a human being, but I try to stay away from it because I'm trying to look 20-something for the long haul. These protein balls are one of my favorite things to snack on when I want something sweet, because they taste semi-sweet but have absolutely no added sugar and they have protein and fiber to fill me up.
I'm in the process of creating a 5-day clean eating reboot program for free and these will definitely be a part of it! But I thought I would share them a little earlier, because that's what I tend to do. Anyways, if you want a healthy snack and something to keep those sugar cravings in check, definitely try these out. I have a feeling you're going to love them. xo
6 tbsp plant based protein powder (I used Sunwarrior vanilla)
2 tbsp almond or peanut butter
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 1/2 tbsp monkfruit sweetener
6-8 drops stevia (start slow and add more as needed)
2 tbsp warm water
2 tbsp coconut milk (or any nut mylk of your choice)
1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
optional coconut flakes for rolling balls in
Put everything except for coconut flakes in a food processor or high speed blender and blend until well combined. Roll into small balls and coat in coconut flakes if desired. Makes roughly 10 balls, depending on how big you make them.
