I didn’t know this holiday existed until yesterday and to be honest, I’m a little upset that I haven’t been celebrating this day each year. In our house, peanut butter is not just a staple; it’s basically our life source! Some of our favorite desserts have peanut butter in them, but one of my all time favorites is the Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Gooey Butter Cake. Oh my word! Y’all are going to be hugging my neck when you make it because it is THAT GOOD!

If you’re wanting a treat without an insane amount of butter and sugar, try our original recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls. Jacob and I searched and searched Pinterest for the perfect protein ball recipe and we couldn’t find exactly what we wanted, so we created our own. After a few trials and errors we came up with what we think is the perfect mix. Our Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls are a great pre or post workout snack and occasionally we will eat one after dinner instead of dessert. They are super easy to make and the best part is… you just have to wash one bowl!

Directions

Gather all of your ingredients. These are the brands that we used when we made these this week. We usually use raw organic honey, but chose to use a raw local honey this week instead and it didn’t change the texture or taste. We are experimenting with different proteins and our current favorite is Bluebonnet Whey Protein Isolate. Again, no change in the end result, so feel free to use the protein powder of your choice. A warning about protein powders: read the label! There are often times lots of bogus ingredients and fake sugars (a big NO-NO in our house!) hidden in this “health” food.

    Sounds delicious – Where do you find the chocolate protein powder?

      We actually purchased that brand in Denver, but you can find protein powder at the grocery store in the health food section. They also have it at GNC.

    PS – are you going to give us the “C” Bible verse today? I’m thinking it will be “Come to Me all you who are weary & I will give you rest.”
