Perfect Pick Me Up Snack
These little almond butter chocolate chip protein balls are just the thing for an afternoon “pick-me-up” snack, and they are great for those with a peanut allergy!!
Protein Is Necessary
I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have enough protein in my meals/snacks, I am sorta worthless for the rest of the day! Protein is so essential for our bodies to stay energized and focused.
One of my favorite resources for healthy advice and tips is from Dr. Josh Axe. He lists several things that can possibly happen when we don’t get enough protein in our diet; such as, a sluggish metabolism, moodiness and low immunity just to name a few. Click here to read more.
Do You Feel Sluggish?
As you can see, protein is pretty important!! I personally like to have a small protein-packed snack mid-afternoon so I can avoid that afternoon slump. As a stay-at-home mom, if I don’t keep moving with household choirs (or making THM recipes for you all), it is easy for me to sit down and get tired in the afternoon.
Almonds Or Peanuts
I recently stocked up on almond butter, so I was wanting to make a simple dessert/snack with it. I know a lot of recipes call for peanut butter (which I love too), but I wanted to do something a bit different. You could use peanut butter for these almond butter chocolate chip protein balls as well if you don’t have almond butter on hand.
They may be extra good with my Homemade Peanut Butter with Chia & Flaxseed!!
Simple & Delicious
This recipe is so incredibly simple…but isn’t that what we trim healthy mama’s like?? Simple and delicious? Well, here you have it! A protein ball that will keep your energy levels up and running.
My almond butter chocolate chip protein balls call for 2-3 scoops of THM Pristine Whey Protein Powder…these protein balls will be a little soft using 2 scoops, but you are more than welcome to use 3 scoops of protein powder if you prefer a “stiffer” treat.
I put mine in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes and they were fine. I would think that the chocolate pristine whey protein powder would make this really good too! If you try it, let me know how you like it.
