Healthy Peanut Butter Surprise Power Bonbons, made THREE ways! Rich, sweet, and uber fudgy, these peanut butter energy bites will fuel your day!

Okay.  Get ready.  For these are the most strange, yet most delicious bonbons you will ever make and eat.  And the word “bonbon” is the closest term I can come up with when it comes to naming… these.  First, I called them peanut butter “pockets,” then “truffles,” then “balls.”  But balls didn’t really sound elegant or sophisticated, like these bonbons are  😉

One can never tire of the infamous Peanut Butter Protein Balls, but one may wish for an upgrade.  So that is what I did.  Three different ways!

I guess you can also call these energy bites because they contain long-lasting-energy foods, such as peanut butter, protein powder and honey.  Meant for long days studying at the library, boring days at work, or just for plain ol’ energy when we need it and need it tasty, but don’t want to reach for processed bars or gross looking dates.  So, can you guess the three flavors I came up with?

Walnut Cinnamon:

  • Press a walnut in each ball and wrap the dough around it.

These were actually my favorite flavor, surprisingly, since a competitor involved chocolate!  I loved the cinnamon glaze and the soft crunch of the walnut–it had perfect balance!

Now, the next flavor:

Obviously, these were the runner up (doh, it has chocolate and rice krispies!).  It reminded me of my Peanut Butter Chocolate Krispy Treats, only these are a whole lot faster to whip up…  This is dangerous!  :O

I loved the raisins in these!  And I don’t even like raisins… strange.  Anyways, it added a great, natural sweetness to the bite.  I will definitely make these again soon.  As for the coconut glaze, I didn’t taste much coconut so next time I will add a 5-10 drops of coconut extract.  Still, these made me smile and melt inside  🙂

And did I mention the possibilities for these are endless?!  I’m thinking of making the coconut raisin flavor with a banana coin and a dash of cinnamon instead of the raisins… or making the peanut butter “cookies” with almond butter and some almond extract.  Or, the peanut butter “cookies” made with chocolate protein powder, with a chocolate filling AND chocolate drizzle!!!  Oh my goodness.  I think I’m having heart palpitations…

With love and good eats,
