Once again I am experimenting with protein balls. Have you heard of Wowbutter? It’s a Canadian made substitute for peanut butter using soy beans. When my kidlet was young I tried to sub it in for a PBJ that could goto school. But she always knew something was different – texture I think and so I abandoned Wow. But years later, knee deep in protein ball recipes I thought to give it a try. And you know what? It is awesome in these double chocolate power balls.
Serving: Makes 16 ping pong sized balls with 6 grams of protein in two balls.
1/2 cup creamy Wowbutter
1 cup oats
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup honey
3 TB chocolate protein powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
3 TB chocolate chips (optional)
In a medium bowl mix Wowbutter, honey and vanilla and stir till well mixed.
In a small bowl toss oats with cocoa and protein powder and salt. Add to wet mixture and stir till well combined. Add chocolate chips if desired.
Form and roll into ping pong sized balls.
I like to keep them in the refrigerator to keep firm. I haven’t frozen them (they don’t last that long 🙂) but I can’t see why they wouldn’t be fine.
