Low Carb Buckeyes

 

INGREDIENTS

1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
*2/3 cup Steviva blend (powdered in a nut or coffee grinder)
2 cups whey protein (I used Kaizen unflavored)
1 cup dark chocolate chips (for dipping)

*measure the Steviva Blend before powdering it

 

DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl, mix together the almond butter, butter, vanilla, protein powder powdered Steviva Blend. The dough will look dry. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
Press a toothpick into the top of each ball (to be used later as the handle for dipping) and chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
Melt chocolate chips in a small glass bowl or measuring cup. Stir frequently until smooth.
Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving.

Makes 48

    Thought I would let you know our walmart is carring the Hershey brand sugar free chocolate chips that should lower the carb count
