In the endless search for the perfect protein bar, I found my way to Dale's Raw Bars. I love the mint chocolate chip, strawberry banana and chocolate peanut butter. But I wanted to try my hand at my own protein snack concoction. Something small, protein-loaded, satisfying, slightly sweet, a little crunchy, easy to make. Tall order, but I'm happy to report...I did it! Yup, 4 grams of protein per ball - and they taste like raw cookie dough! On a side note, not sure if you noticed, but my son pointed out that all I make are nuts and balls. He's 15, so I'll let that go.
Here's the nutrition breakdown...
Protein - 4. Fat - 6. Carbs - 4. Sugar - 2. Cal - 76. Sodium - 16.
2/3 cup almond butter (fresh ground from Whole Foods)
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop unflavored organic pea protein (I like 365 brand)
