Vanilla Peppermint Protein Balls

Vanilla Peppermint Protein Balls

I am always looking for ways to combine protein snacks with scrumptious desserts. I bought candy canes today for the Christmas tree and decided to use this as my inspiration! These vanilla peppermint protein balls are a cross between a protein bar and a dessert…so feel free to eat them at any point in the day. If you are trying to lose weight, do without the candy cane topping or just limit the amount. Gather all ingredients and combine all ingredients (except the candy canes) in a large bowl. I use my hands at the end to ensure that the “protein dough” is mixed well. If you feel the dough is too dry, simply add a tiny bit of water to the mixture and mix well until you reach desired texture. The dough should resemble cookie dough in texture. The size of the protein powder scoop is different for everyone, therefore you may have slightly different textures. Place the dough in the freezer while you crush the candy canes in the food processor. Let sit in freezer fro at least 5 minutes. NEED A FOOD PROCESSOR? Click here to view some of my favorites! Remove the bowl of vanilla peppermint protein dough from the freezer and roll the dough into balls. I made about 10 large balls from this recipe.

Place the balls back into the freezer for at least 15 minutes and then enjoy! Store in a sealed container in the...
Healthy Peanut Butter Banana No-Bake Cookies

Healthy Peanut Butter Banana No-Bake Cookies

Anyone else obsessed with peanut butter and chocolate? I am not typically a cookie fan, but no-bakes are a totally different story! I looooooove no-bake cookies, but they are just terrible for the waistline. I decided to make my own concoction, as always, and this is what I came up with: Pour almond milk into a saucepan. Add cocoa powder, mashed bananas, and peanut butter. Put the stove on low heat and continue stirring and mashing up the mixture until well blended. It is okay if you still see small chunks of banana. Add the coconut oil, oats, flaxseed, and stevia to the saucepan. Remove from the heat and mix well. Add the protein powder and mix well. The mixture should be very thick. Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Scoop a large spoonful of the cookie mixture and form in the shape of a cookie with your hands. Place the cookie on the parchment paper and continue process until the mixture is gone. Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes or until firm. Enjoy right away and/or store the remaining cookies (in an airtight container/baggie) in the...
