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
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.
1/4 cup butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 cup almond butter
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup steviva blend
1/4 cup heavy cream *
1/4 cup almond milk
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add remaining ingredients. Drop spoonfuls onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
Chill until firm.
Instead of cream and/or almond milk you could use coconut milk (I bet that would be YUMMY too!)
I’m a Nutritional Consultant, Illustrator, health and fitness enthusiast and I love to cook healthy food. I try to avoid sugar and grain but I'm not always 100% stickler to the rules. *gasp*
I always try to create recipes that are healthy that the whole family can enjoy.
Also, I like to just post great recipes. Not a history of the recipe, if my friends and neighbours liked it, how many acrobats were harmed in making the recipe or zillions of photos of said recipes. Keeping it simple.
If you have any nutritional questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
