I love to bake but having baked goods around the house isn’t always the best for my waist line. I try and freeze my bake goods so when the 3:00 pm munchies roll around I am not tempted to go for the kids treats I have in the house.
So to help curb my the afternoon cravings I always need to have a sweet treat available that doesn’t taste like it is good for me. Even though it is! It has to look just as good.
Power Balls are my go-to. Doesn’t really matter the flavour and I find it fun to experiment by throwing a bunch of ingredients in the bowl and see what happens. Well that is exactly what I did today when I was unprepared and had no healthy snacks left.
Coconut Vanilla Shakeology Power Balls!
These took no more than 5 minutes (no kidding) to make and I even surprised myself at how good these were so I had to share this recipe for sure!
They are made up of nothing but goodness! Coconut, Chia Seesds, Hemp Hearts, Peanut Butter and Protein Powder plus a little sweetness with honey.
These Coconut Vanilla Shakeology balls are perfect for a quick snack and super portable to bring with you when you are on the go. As a professional sales rep by day I always need portable snacks which is why I try and have power balls ready to take with me. Just put in a little container so they don’t get squished out out the door! No need to stop by Starbucks for a treat!
I find one is enough for me as a snack and if you are following the 21 Day Fix Program one one would count as 1 Orange Container, 2 tsp and 1/4 Red.
- 2 scoops Vanilla Shakeology or protein powder of your choice
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes reserve 1/4 cup
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
- 1/4 chia seeds
- 1 tsp vanilla alcohol free
In a medium bowl add all ingredients and mix well until combined.
Roll a heaping table spoon of mixture until forms a smooth ball
Roll in balls in remaining 1/4 cup of coconut flakes
Store in airtight container in fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to 1 month.
