Recipes |Peanut Butter Protein Balls 

If your schedule is anything like mine, you hardly have enough time to let your Keurig heat up in the morning let alone time to stop and eat breakfast. I have a delicious on-the- go solution that will keep you full and give you energy all morning long! I got the idea from my nanny mom and then adapted the recipe to my liking.


Ingredients:

– 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa

– 1 cup creamy peanut butter

– 1/4 cup coconut flour

– 1/4 cup coconut oil

– 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or light brown cane sugar depending on what you prefer)

– 1/2 cup flaked coconut

– pinch of salt

What to do:

– Start by cooking quinoa. When it has been cooked, remove from heat and add melted coconut oil and coconut sugar. Spread out on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in oven at 400 for about 20 minutes occasionally stirring. Broil for 5 minutes (or until golden brown and toasted).

– Mix peanut butter, flour, salt, coconut flakes and quinoa together in a bowl until completely incorporated adding additional flour and sugar as needed to shiver desired consistency. (I prefer consistency that is a little more wet than if you were making a pie crust.)

– Roll balls that are approximately 1 inch in diameter and store in an airtight container. They keep on the counter or refrigerated for about a week.
