Low Carb Peanut Butter Balls
You may not be aware but September is Better Breakfast month so I intend on developing some delicious and low carb breakfast recipes, like these low carb peanut butter balls. These pb balls may be nutritious, but they sure don’t taste boring.
They remind me of a Christmas dessert from my childhood, only with a nutritious twist. These peanut butter balls and peanut butter in general, are a great addition to mornings because of their natural source of protein, nutrients and phytonutrients.
Considering how well these can be stored, you can easily make these over the weekend and enjoy them as a quick breakfast throughout the week. The pb balls are a mixture of peanut butter, flax meal, protein powder, vanilla extract, and sweetener (optional). It’s shocking how such few ingredients can make something so delicious, nutritious and full of protein.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 cup flax meal
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup sweetener (optional)
- ½ cup peanuts, for coating (optional)
- In a medium bowl, mix together peanut butter, flax meal, protein powder, vanilla and sweetener for about 1-2 minutes or until it begins to thicken.
- Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate mixture for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day so that the peanut butter mixture can firm up.
- Shape peanut butter into 1-inch balls, cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to allow to firm up again.
- Roll peanut butter balls in crushed peanuts or sweetener.
