Or as I call them, little bites of heaven! These things are the best little snacks. They curb my sweet craving and they are actually good me for! My boys love them and request them in their lunch boxes as their snack.
I use Shakeology for these. I have never made them with any other protein powder so I can’t tell you how they would taste if you tried. Vanilla, Chocolate and Cafe Latte flavored Shakeology all work well for these. The vanilla actually look like raw cookie dough. I wouldn’t recommend using the Strawberry or Greenberry flavors. I haven’t tried it but it doesn’t sound very appetizing.
You just dump all the ingredients in the bowl of your stand mixer and let it do the rest. Once it is completely combined, roll them into 1-inch balls and store them in the refrigerator.
I use raw honey whenever a recipe calls for honey. It’s a bit more expensive bit most processed honey today has been heated and filtered, robbing it of its nutritional value and resulting in a product no more valuable than a simple sweetener. Raw honey contains up to 80 different substances important to human nutrition. Besides glucose and fructose, honey contains: All of the B-complex, A, C, D, E, and K, minerals and trace elements: magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, iron, calcium, chlorine, potassium, iodine, sodium, copper, and manganese. The live enzyme content of honey is one of the highest of all foods. Raw honey also contains hormones and antimicrobial and antibacterial factors.
The recipe only makes one batch of 13-14 balls but it can easily be doubled. Give them a try, they truly are little bites of heaven!
