Looking for a tasty quick snacks that not only give you energy, but help satisfy a craving for sweets? These chocolate almond butter balls do just that. This is a slightly modified version of a recipe I got from core conditioning, a great site for recipes.
(Makes 12 Balls)
- ½ cup rolled oats
- ¼ cup whole wheat flour or grain mix
- ¼ cup almond butter
- 1 Tbsp Agave
- 1 Scoop Vanilla Whey Protein Powder
- 1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
- Possibly some water
Put rolled oats in a food processor and mix until you have a flour-like consistency. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until a rough dough is formed. If you don’t have a food processor, just mix it in a large bowl.
You may need add water if the dough is too dry to form a ball. Once you form all 12 dough balls, place them in the fridge (they keep for about a week).
One Ball = 57 calories, 3.3g Fat, 3.8g carbohydrates, 2.9g protein, 1.2g fiber, 20mg sodium
I (and my kids) just grab one of these out of the fridge whenever they get a craving… my son on the way out the door to play basketball, and my daughter throws a few in a snack bag when planning to be at softball for hours. I just love them whenever I get that craving throughout the day, or before or after the gym.
Give them a try, hope you enjoy them !
