Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Balls Recipe

Have you ever heard the statement “abs are made in the kitchen” and wondered what that meant? You’re not alone. The point behind that sentence is that you have to eat well in order for your muscles to show. If you eat junk, then you’ll have too much body fat covering up the muscles that you work so hard for in the gym. You can’t out-work a bad diet. Trust me.

Snack Recipes with Protein Powder

 


 

That being said, I’ve been trying out different recipes that incorporate protein powder in them. Extra points for recipes that taste like dessert. The first recipe I tried out was the Triple Chocolate Protein Muffins! And man, oh man, they were AMAZING!

My second recipe, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bites, was a hit as well! I found this recipe on Popsugar and knew I’d love it. I used Walmart’s Purely Inspired Chocolate protein powder (which is a gluten-free, 100% plant-based, protein powder!! Woot woot!). You can get this protein at Walmart! These are low fat protein balls…. and they’re clean eating protein balls!

Protein Powder Recipe Idea

Who else LOVES guilty-free desserts that taste good and are packed with protein?! Or how about chocolate muffins that won’t kill your macros?! I don’t know about you… but for me, YES. Give me all the desserts and chocolate and wonderful-tasting things in the world. Over the past few weeks, I have researched and tried out some dessert recipes that would satiate my sweet tooth and would also help me reach my protein macro goal. Double plus, if it can help me achieve my fitness goals too. Triple plus, if it’s not hard to make! To keep you from falling out of your chair in suspense, I’ll give you the winner: Protein Muffins.




Chocolate Protein Powder Muffins

I’ve been using Purely Inspired Protein Powder, which is gluten-free, 100% plant-based, protein powder for the protein. I love that it is an artificial coloring/flavoring free plant protein. What makes this recipe even better is that you put protein bar pieces in it too! Extra protein for the win! These protein muffins are full of protein, so they’ll fill you up and keep your stomach satisfied for more than twenty minutes like your typical, sugary muffins will. 

What’s so special about these protein powder muffins?

  1. You can eat these for breakfast. Because they’re muffins.
  2. But you can also eat them as a DESSERT. Because they’re TRIPLE CHOCOLATE.
  3. They’re my favorite clean eating muffins!
  4. It doesn’t take many ingredients or a lot of time.

Learn How to Suppress Hunger with The Best Way to Curb Appetite

One thing that I have REALLY struggled with on my fitness journey is portion control. Oftentimes, my eyes are bigger than my stomach… or I don’t know when to stop eating, especially if something is delicious. I just can’t help myself. I’ve known for awhile that my eating habits (like over-indulging or munching) are my main barrier to getting the body that I want/am working so hard for. Now that the holiday season is underway, I am in desperate need of something to help keep me on track.

What’s a girl to do? How do I suppress hunger? How do I reduce my appetite?

Answer: MealEnders.

MealEnders Lozenges

mealenders 2

MealEnders created a lozenge with a sweet exterior and a cool/tingling inside. The sweetness on the outside gives you some dessert style flavor (to satiate the part of you that is dying for dessert!) while the cool inside cleanses the palette.

The Best Way to Stop Overeating

According to MealEnders, “Sucking on a lozenge when you know you’ve consumed enough — but can’t stop — keeps your mouth and mindoccupied during the 20-minute Overeating Zone, giving your body’s natural satiety process time to catch up.” There are 4 flavors: Cinnamon, Mocha, Chocolate Mint, & Citrus. Here’s the skinny on the flavors:

  • Cinnamon: YUM. I was really surprised by cinnamon. I was expecting “Big Red” style flavor. But this tasted like a cinnamon crumb cake.
  • Mocha: Personally, I am not a huge coffee-flavored-anything person. But I didn’t HATE this one! If you like coffee or mocha, this one may be for you!
  • Chocolate Mint: Dark chocolate outside and minty inside. I really liked this one. I think it had the best effect on giving me a satisfying sweet flavor with a cleansing touch at the end.
  • Citrus: If you like citrus, then you’ll enjoy this lozenge after a meal. Lemon and lime outside with a vanilla-y citrus core.

After you’ve gotten your sweet dessert fix from the outer layer of the lozenge, the center really helps curb your appetite and help you stop from over-eating. I noticed a “tingling” after I finished (though, not a bad tingling!). You know how you don’t really want to eat something right after you brush your teeth? Similar concept. I think it’s great!! Even Ally thinks they are pretty cool!

Pineapple Chicken Skewers

Prep Time

Cook Time
8 min
Prep Time
30 min
Cook Time
8 min
Ingredients
  1. 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 20 1 1/2 inch pieces
  2. 1 red or green bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  3. 1 onion, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  4. 20 fresh pineapple chunks (1 1/2 inch chunks)
  5. 10 strips of bacon, cut into halves
  6. 8-12 6 inch skewers
Sauce
  1. 1/3 cup Real Maple Syrup
  2. 2/3 cup BBQ Sauce (my favorite is Sweet Baby Rae's BBQ Sauce!)
Instructions
  1. Combine maple syrup and barbecue sauce, set aside
  2. Submerge skewers in warm water for 20 minutes (I usually put water in a large bowl and do half of the skewer at a time. You can also get a baking pan with edges, cover it with warm water, and place the skewers on the pan).
  3. Cut all the ingredients into 1 1/2 inch pieces (Doesn't have to be exact! Just big enough to be fit onto a skewer).
  4. Cook bacon in frying pan until about 1/2 of the way done. Don't let it cook completely. You want to be able to bend the bacon in order to wrap it around the chicken in the next step!
  5. Drain bacon slices briefly then wrap each piece of bacon around each piece of chicken
  6. Thread the skewers (I use this order, but you can do whatever you want!): bell pepper, onion, bacon wrapped chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper/onion, bacon wrapped chicken, pineapple chunk, bell pepper/onion. Depending on how big you want each skewer to be, increase or decrease the number of ingredients on each skewer.
  7. Place skewers on a baking sheet topped with aluminum foil. Instead of aluminum foil, you can coat the pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  8. Once all skewers are threaded, slather the sauce on the skewers. Leave about 1/4 of the sauce for later.
  9. Set oven to BROIL. You'll want the pan to be about 4 inches from the heat.
  10. Broil skewers for 4 minutes. Take them out and flip each skewer over.
  11. Broil for another 4 minutes.
  12. Let them cool off, then apply the rest of the sauce - and ENJOY!!!
Notes
  1. Make sure to check that the chicken is cooked all the way through by cutting into one or two of the chicken pieces. They should be white (not pink) on the inside.
