Peanut Butter Protein Poppers

Peanut Butter Protein Poppers. Say THAT one 5 times fast!
These are so good. I created this recipe on a Saturday morning. I had just gotten home from a 6 mile run and yoga session and I wanted quick energy. These babies certainly delivered! Packed with a whopping 20 grams of protein, these yummy treats are so versatile. Healthy enough to eat for breakfast, yet sweet enough to serve as a dessert. And who doesn't love the protein count?! This one is for all those dear hearts who ask, "but how do you get your protein?"...

Peanut Butter Protein Poppers.

Peanut Butter Protein Poppers; Vegan, Gluten-Free. Makes 8 mini "poppers".

  1. 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds
  2. 2 T protein powder of choice (I used Jarrow Vanilla)
  3. 2 dates, pitted
  4. generous shake of cinnamon
  5. 1 T Better 'N Peanut Butter
  6. splash of water (amount varies...about 1-1 1/2 T)

  1. Simply add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until sticky and holds together. 
  2. Scoop out 1 T of "dough" and roll into a ball. Repeat to make 8 balls. Place on plate, cover, and freeze for 15 minutes.
