Here is a yummy snack that can fill you up with healthy food and give you more energy and protein to keep you from hunger and carb cravings. ENJOY!!
1 C nut butter – smooth peanut, almond or my favorite sunflower & honey butter – buy organic
1 C Quality vanilla protein powder – my choice is either Energizing Soy or Life Plan Shake by Shaklee
1/4-1/3 C local honey to taste
1/4 C dried fruit – cranberry, cut up dates, raisins all work well
1/4 C chopped walnuts, pecans, or cashews
1 C of shredded coconut
Mix together nut butter and protein powder. You may have to use your hands at the end
Add honey and complete the mixing
Add the other ingredients except coconunt and form into balls, using a teaspoon as your guide. Some water on your hands may make this easier and less messy.
Put coconut into a small baggie and add 1 ball at a time and shake to coat. Keep on a plate, covered in the refrigerator until you serve them.
Yum!! Let me know what you like the best!
