Before I really understood what healthy meant, I used to love all the recipes I found online for “power balls” or “protein balls” thinking they were good for me! Not of those recipes are filled with sugary ingredients like chocolate chips and sugar covered coconut shreds. The only protein source was often sugary peanut butter. Nevertheless, they were yummy!
Now that I have a grasp on what’s healthy and nourishing for my body! So I’ve recreated these tasty little treats into something that actually IS good for me!
This recipe uses defatted peanut flour, instead of traditional recipes using peanut butter. This eliminates two factors that can be dangerous in a treat, heavy amounts of sugars and fats! Instead, we will replace the sugars with a stevia blend and monkfruit sweetened maple syrup!
1/2 cup Defatted Peanut Flour
1/4 tsp Mineral salt
1/4 cup water
2 T Trim Healthy Mama Super Sweet Blend or Pyure Stevia blend
2 scoops Collagen
1 cup oats
Place the defatted peanut flour, mineral salt and super sweet blend into a bowl.
Stir in the water and monk fruit maple syrup to make a sticky peanut-butter-like consistency.
Add in the oats, and sprinkle on top the collagen and baking blend. Stir, stir, stir!
Use a cookie scoop to make perfect little bites and roll in your palms to make them smooth.
I like to store mine in the refrigerator to make them more firm, and last longer!
These are low in fat, and have only healthy carbs! Making them a Trim Healthy Mama E recipe!
You could add a tablespoon or two of some super foods (see list below) but know that adding too much fat will make this recipe a Cross Over. See great for pregnant, nursing mothers, those at goal weight, and occasional treats!
