Remember those amazing peanut butter balls covered in chocolate, that your mom probably made during the holidays? The creamy peanut butter mixed with confectioner’s sugar and coated in decadent milk chocolate, called Buckeyes?
Well those were some of my all time favorite decadent treats growing up. And though I didn’t get them very often, peanut butter and chocolate is still the combination I seek out most when I’m wanting something sweet.
So for those times when I just have to have some peanut butter and chocolate, I’ve found these Protein “Buckeyes” do the trick. Made with dark chocolate, natural peanut butter, and no added sugar, I can feel much better about indulging in this little treat.
Peanut Butter-high in protein, excellent source of niacin, biotin, B vitamins, calcium and potassium. Rich in tryptophan which promotes healthy nervous system functioning. Good source of boron, which plays a vital role in bone health
Dark Chocolate-not healthy in large amounts, but in comparison to regular chocolate, the less processed dark chocolate is low in sugar, contains antioxidants, and contains the good fats: oleic and linoleic acid.
These Buckeyes are unbelievably easy to whip up, and will fix your chocolate peanut butter craving in no time. Give ‘em a try!
1/2 cup Vanilla or Chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate, chopped
In a bowl mix together, combine ingredients and microwave for 30-40 seconds. Stir until the chocolate melts, and ingredients blend together. Pop the bowl into the fridge for an hour, then using a tablespoon, scoop out a spoonful, and roll into a ball. Continue with remaining mixture. Enjoy!
