I am a snacker. I would rather eat six small meals a day than three square ones. As such, I’m always on the hunt for portable and healthy snacks, preferably without too much sugar. I am not fun on a sugar crash, just ask Mil or my husband! One of my favorite bloggers, The Fitnessista, has introduced me to several of my go-to recipes. One of my all time favorites are her Amazeballs, which over the years I have tweaked to my own personal tastes. (Read: I added more chocolate.)
Here is my recipe for a delicious, easy, and healthy snack on the go. Little balls of energy that are, well, pretty amazing!
(inspired by The Fitnessista)
6 Tbl chocolate (or vanilla) protein powder
6 Tbl almond butter
8 Tbl unsweetened shredded coconut
1 Rounded tsp cocoa powder
2 Tbl honey (add more to taste)
1/2 Tsp vanilla extract
1 Ounce unsweetened chocolate
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
These would be great to keep at work or to toss into your lunch. I’ve only made the chocolate flavor, as I never get sick out it, but it’d be fun to try a few different variations. PB&J maybe?
