Archive for the ‘Amaze-Balls’ Category

Just can’t get enough of Your Love Baby. A while back I made my first batch of Amaze-Balls, check them out here. I am a bit obsessed. So easy to make and such a great healthy option.

Craving chocolate and cookies what do you do? You Make Amaze-Balls 2 Ways. Amaze-Balls to the rescue.

First I made Nutella Amaze-Balls.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 2 Tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions

  1. Pour oats into food processor and pulse until they become a flour.
  2. Add protein powder and, pulse to combine thoroughly.
  3. Mix in agave, Nutella and vanilla — you can do this by hand if your machine can’t handle it. Pulse a few times and watch your machine. If it seems to be too much, pull dough out and mix by hand.
  4. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls.
  5. Refrigerate. Eat and Enjoy.

Then I made Vanilla Chia Seed Amaze-Balls.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • 2 Tablespoons Almond Butter
  • 1 Teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Directions

  1. Pour oats into food processor and pulse until they become a flour.
  2. Add protein powder, and pulse to combine thoroughly.
  3. Stir and incorporate 1 Teaspoon of Chia Seeds, then
  4. Mix in agave, Almond butter and vanilla — you can do this by hand if your machine can’t handle it. Pulse a few times and watch your machine. If it seems to be too much, pull dough out and mix by hand.
  5. Roll into tablespoon-sized balls.
  6. Refrigerate. Eat and Enjoy.

Then I made dinner. Isn’t that how everyone does it? So in order to make a quick dinner I grabbed a few ingredient from the fridge, I sort of had an idea of what I wanted to make. I just added this and that based on what I had on hand.

I scrambled some egg whites, toasted an English muffin, sliced a piece of Pastrami Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon and grabbed my avocado and a slice of shape white cheddar cheese and assembled.

I smashed the avocado on one side of the muffin, then just piled on the rest of the ingredients.

End result was this flavorful English muffin sandwich. The sharp cheddar and the salmon really worked well together and the avocado did what it does best and added a smooth mellow creamy texture to each bite. Man, I loved every single bite of this sandwich. Perfection.

Then I ate a few more Amaze-Balls.

Love comes in many shapes and sizes, my new love is in the form of these protein peanut butter balls.

Amaze-Balls is really all I can say about them. Crazy how sometimes the littlest food item packs the most flavor and satisfy my sweet tooth.

I have seen these Protein Balls here and there on other Healthy Living Blogs, but never really saw a flavor that made me stand up and shout, I need those NOW. Yes, I have printed each and every recipe I have seen, but have yet to make them, that was until I saw Calee’s recipe for Chocolate Salty [protein] Balls.
