I won’t say these taste like a candy bar because they aren’t as sweet. BUT if you’re looking for a guilt- free clean chocolate fix, these tasty protein packed balls can be whipped up quickly and enjoyed within 20 minutes! They only require 4 ingredients and are very simple!
What you need: (makes 6 balls)
-2 TBS PB2 (powdered peanut butter). If you choose to use regular peanut butter, use just 1 TBS
-2 TBS unsweetened Cocoa
-1 TBS cinnamon
-1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (any brand, I used Muscle Milk)

Add 1 TBS of water AT A TIME until batter becomes like a mousse texture. Don’t add too much or it will be too soupy. I believe I put about 5-6 TBS in my mixture to make it look like this:

Place batter into fridge for 15 min.

Remove from fridge and roll into balls (about 1 TBS each). Roll onto plate of cinnamon and cocoa powder. I also added sprinkles..shocker, I know :).

Once your 6 balls are formed, I would suggest sticking them back in the fridge for 5 minutes to get chilled. Remove and enjoy!
