Protein Peanut Butter Buckeyes

Protein Buckeyes

One of my favorite sweet treats growing up were buckeyes. As someone in the health and fitness profession, I know that the original recipe for these delightful, melt in your mouth treats is far from healthy. Luckily I was able to come up with a tasty healthier alternative using protein powder.

Ingredients:
• 1 scoop protein powder of your choice (I use ProSupps Isolate)
• 2 tbsp peanut or almond butter
• 2 tbsp honey
• 65% dark chocolate chips

Instructions:
Mix all ingredients together. If consistency is too sticky, add more protein. If consistency is too dry, add more honey. Roll dough into balls and place on parchment paper or saran wrap. Add a chocolate chip to the top of the balls. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Recipe yields roughly 5 balls
