Who doesn't love to make homemade protein snack balls? I have had the wonderful opportunity to try the Paleo Pro products and I am SO impressed. In fact, I used their Aztec Vanilla protein powder in what has now become my favorite shake combination ever (1/2 frozen blueberries, 30g Aztec Vanilla protein powder & 10 ounces of coconut almond milk). I am an unbiased and honest reviewer for everything I write on this blog and can tell you, as someone who has a sensitive stomach, these products made me feel great: no bloating, etc. And OMG THEY HAVE A PUMPKIN SPICE FLAVORED POWDER! Yes, I am one of those people who loves on that pumpkin spice. Judge away. You know you want some- click here to get some. No soy, no whey, no added sugar, no gluten, grains, wheat. artificial ingredients, and so on. The cost for these products is very reasonable given their high quality. Way to go, Paleo Pro! You have a fan for life. I loved making the protein balls and was originally going to use almond meal in the recipe but am so glad I used the coconut flour because it added some great fiber content. The recipe is below- give them a try!
PB Chocolate Coconut Protein Balls
1 1/2 cups quick-oats (I use Trader Joe's Gluten-Free Quick Oats)
1/3 cup Paleo Pro Ancient Cacao protein powder (or 30g) Click here to buy!
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
3 TBSP maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
|Make sure to pulse your ingredients until almost smooth.|
Put all of the above ingredients into a food processor and pulse until almost smooth. You do not want to blend the ingredients until they are grainy because they will not roll well. This recipe will make anywhere from 21 small protein balls or you can certainly roll them into about 10 large protein balls. For added flavor, roll in coconut flakes.
