I will confess. I have a serious addiction to sugar that I have been trying to break for a long long time. I think quitting smoking has been easier than letting go of the sugar.
What do I do when I have a craving? Now, if I kept donuts and cookies in the house I would go straight to them (and when I buy them for everyone else from time to time I do. Yikes.) but when I have these little bites around I save myself! With the clean ingredients in my belly, I feel less guilty.
Some recipes call for certain measurements but I have experimented enough that I just eyeball it. It all depends if you are making a small or large batch. My small batch usually yields 12 bites in a ball shape.
I start by adding a few tablespoons of peanut butter.
Then I add 1 scoop of Vegan or Chocolate Shakeology. Feel free to use your favorite protein or nutritional powder. If you are interested in trying all 6 flavors of Shakeology in the newly released sampler pack check it out HERE (Coming March 16) to get on the waitlist email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I add in quick oats and organic shredded coconut until the peanut butter and oats start to form a thick mixture. If it seems to be too creamy or too dry you can add more oats (or other add ins such as nuts, etc) or if too dry add some of your sweetener (start with a tablespoon at a time) and then more nut butter.
Lastly, roll into balls and place on wax or parchment paper. Then chill for about an hour!
Let me know what you think!
