If you love peanut butter like I love peanut butter, I have a present for you—just between us PB lovers.
PEANUT BUTTER PROTEIN BITES
2 c. peanut butter (natural, no sugar)
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
¼ c. molasses
2 T. honey (raw/local if you can)
2-3T. whole flaxseeds*
Throw it all in a bowl and mix with a silicone spatula. It’ll turn into the consistency of play dough so get your hands in there and knead it when it does. Form little, bite-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze for an hour or two.
*The whole flaxseeds have virtually no flavor and give your protein balls a little bit of a crunch which I love, so I put the whole 3 tablespoons in there. If you’re a little leery about it, go ahead and put 2 and see how you like them.
These are a great, quick snack when you’re getting into the Hunger Danger Zone. They can save you from breaking down and hitting up that vending machine until you’re able to get a proper lunch in you. Be sure to use the hashtag #JDhealthysnacking if you’d like to share your snacks on Insta!
