So have we all had a fabulous productive/relaxing week?? Honestly I usually get to the end of the week and may be asked by someone "so...hows your week been? What have you got up to?" And I'll stand there...mouth half open...wondering to myself...just what the heck HAVE I actually been up to??? Time flies and I never seem to sit until the evening yet I often feel I haven't accomplished nearly enough!! I'm working on this...alot...hopefully changes to come soon...:))
What I have managed to accomplish this week...as usual...is to whip up a few treats in the kitchen!! I'm currently on the look out and wanting to test run some new healthier "clean" treats for myself and the fam bam...although still baking the usual good old fashioned favourites coz hey...what's a life without cake right...
Anyway...back to these little beauties...I originally saw this recipe in that little freebie food ideas mag that you can grab whilst grocery shopping at Woolworths...the ingredients looked quite "normal" as in I had everything in my pantry...and they seemed ridiculously easy to make...and sounded kind of delicious...always a bonus...
I've tweaked it a bit...of course...and really it could be switched and swapped and added to as much as one would like...but here's what I whipped up and may I say...Mmmmmm mmmmmmm!!!!!!
Peanut Butter Protein Balls
1 cup peanut butter - crunchy or smooth
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup chocolate protein powder
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup oats
1 tablspn cocoa
Vanilla - optional
Mix together your peanut butter and honey - lick any spoons that are spare
Throw all your other ingredients into another bowl and mix together
Add the peanut butter/honey and mix all together - I mostly use my hands for this - it kind of needs kneading together
Now roll your mixture into small balls then roll around in the extra coconut - the balls - roll the balls - not yourself
Pop in the fridge...I also like to freeze some
Try not to eat them all in one sitting
These are just perfect to enjoy with a cuppa...especially in the evening when you (or is it just me??) are searching for something sweetish to enjoy...
Okay...I believe the weekend has officially arrived...let's go and do this shall we......
