4 Ingredient Protein Banana Truffle Balls Recipe

One day I was browsing Pinterest and saw a great idea for a quick snack – banana pieces dipped in chocolate. I got intrigued and knew I had to make it, but I had an idea.

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Roasted Sesame & Peanut Butter Protein Bar Recipe

Homemade protein bar is my saver when I’m shopping, out with the kids or any time I know I won’t have access to a healthy food.

One ingredient in this recipe will shock you but you’ll never be able to taste it. This started out as a protein brownie recipe experiment and ended up as a chocolate cake with an amazing no butter coconut frosting.

The kids eat it super fast, do not ask for any food for a couple hours as this cake…

Fluffy enough, not too chewy, sweet in moderation, completely healthy, packed with 5 g of protein and only 43 calories each! Sounds good to me. I usually have 4-5 pancakes and am good till lunch. My favourite toppings…
