Healthy Buckeye Balls
I proclaim these Healthy Buckeye Balls to be guilt-free… Yup! You heard it.
No powdered sugar.
No partially-hydrogenated peanut butter.
No sugar-coma-inducing milk chocolate.
Natural protein powder.
Wholesome peanut butter.
Antioxidant-rich dark chocolate.
Although they taste like it, these are nothing like any ol’ regular Buckeye Balls, for those are calorie bombs. Mine, oh, they’re just itty bitty calorie firecrackers. These are filled with good calories… healthy fats, satiating protein, lovable chocolate. Everyone adored these!
Taste = eye-opening, sweet and delicious
Texture = supremely chewy with a melt-in-the-mouth effect
Appearance = mini and adorable
- Make the protein balls and refrigerate until firm (10 minutes it's fine)
- Melt the chocolate in the microwave at thirty-second intervals, stirring in between each one, until melted (use more chocolate if you want to coat nearly the entire buckeye ball. Just poke with a toothpick and dip into the chocolate). Dip the protein ball into the chocolate and set on a piece of parchment paper. Once done with the rest of the balls, refrigerate until firm. Take out 10 minutes before serving to soften up.
This recipe is: no bake, high protein, gluten free!
Perfect for parties, or perfect for just yourself. Enjoy!
