I have been on a bit of a health kick lately, so I wanted to make something healthy this week that could keep me on track through the week. Especially because yesterday I made a whole tray of orange brownies and ate more than none of them.
I’d seen a few different recipes on Pinterest for “Power Balls”, which feature a variety of healthy ingredients packed with protein and vitamins all rolled into a few tasty bites . The idea is that one or two of this little balls can fill you up between meals and act as a quick fix for lots of vitamins and nutrients.
So after a little adventure at the bulk bins of Whole Foods, I gathered up a few different healthy things and started mixing. I looked at a bunch of different recipes but ended up winging it based on the ingredients I had and the consistency I knew I had to achieve. I had wheat flour, vanilla protein powder, flax meal, chia seeds, almond butter, peanut butter, cacao nibs, frozen banana, oats, yogurt, cinnamon, and coconut oil.
The first recipe went a little like this… Callin it “Cocao and Oats”
Recipe number two! “Banana Dipped”
It started with wheat flour …
Then all mixed together so everybody was friends
Then my defrosted frozen banana (always in the freezer) which is not photogenic … Very not.
And a big dolop of peanut butter!
And all mixed until its solid and and not too sticky. Add more flour if needed.
No Baking, No Fuss. These were so easy! And pretty healthy, I’m not an expert but some pretty good stuff went into these so they’re totes healthy. You can quote me on that.
