These quick and easy protein puffs will satisfy your cravings for both peanut butter and chocolate – no baking required!
Keep them on hand as a nutritious alternative when tempted by a certain peanut butter and chocolate candy that shall remain nameless.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, coconut flour, cinnamon, and flaxseed. Add the almond butter, manuka honey, vanilla extract, and milk to the bowl. Blend with an electric hand mixer until a slightly sticky, paste-like texture is achieved.
Using your hands, roll the mixture into individual balls that are about 2-3 inches in diameter each. If the mixture feels too dry, add a splash of milk, blend, and try it again. Spread about 2-3 tablespoons of the powdered peanut butter across a small plate. Roll each ball on the plate to coat with a small amount of the powder evenly across the entire surface. Store in the fridge when finished. Note that the flavor of the finished puffs, using the recipe above, tends to be only moderately sweet. For a sweeter treat, add an extra teaspoon of manuka honey.
