If you like a sweet treat on a low carb day, these buckeyes will definitely hit the spot! The FASTer Way protein is so versatile - it's super macro-friendly, low in carbs and high in protein! While I enjoy it in a protein shake or smoothie bowl, it's also fun to make delicious healthy treats with too!
Low Carb Protein Buckeye Balls
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 scoop vanilla FASTer Way Protein powder
1/4 cup sugar free chocolate chips
1 tsp. coconut oil
Mix peanut butter, coconut flour and protein powder until well combined. Scoop into balls (this recipe makes 10) and freeze for 10-15 minutes.
In the meantime, melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave. Remove protein balls from the freezer and dip in the chocolate. Return the freezer for another 10-15 minutes, and ENJOY!!
Store leftover balls in the freezer.

I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
