No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein balls - (Great with Shakeology)

The very healthy version of a no-bake PB Chocolate cookie

8 Tablespoons PB2 (low fat, high protein powdered peanut butter - details below)
3 Tablespoons Natural Peanut butter (w/flax seeds is the best!)
½ Cup Shakeology Protein Powder (Haven't tried this with another brand of protein powder)
3 Tablespoons Raw Honey
½ Cup Quick Oats

Mix PB2 with water until it’s a paste like consistency. Mix all ingredients, including the PB2 mixture together in a mixing bowl. It make take some time to blend all of the ingredients together. If it's too sticky, sprinkle in additional protein powder so that it's a pretty dry/crumbly texture.
Next - Roll mixture into small individual balls (about a ping-pong ball size) and place on a wax sheet. Makes about 12 balls, 1 ounce each. Put in freezer until firm.

(these taste even better when made with 6 tablespoons of PB2 and a 1/2 cup of natural peanut butter, but the calories and fat are higher. If you find the recipe above is too chalky tasting, add the extra peanut butter and do a few more jumping jacks!)
PB2 is AMAZING for baking and protein shakes! 1.5 grams of fat, no additives..they just strip out the fat! When you order be sure to get a case as you'll be going through it fast!
Shakeology is the only protein powder I suggest. Not that others aren't great...I just happen to know the science behind this one and when my doctor endorses it, then I'm on board.
