Now that I know I am resistant to burning fat (from taking my genetics test from Liv genetics), I’m revamping my snacking! And I still want something sweet in the afternoons. My biggest challenge is getting protein with every meal and snack. These Protein Poppers offer protein with a healthy percentage of fat and carbs. It helps my energy stay up and they are very tasty.
1/2 cup peanut or almond butter – unsweetened
1/2 cup PB2 powdered peanut butter (mixed with water to make it thick yet, pliable)*
3 scoops Liv Pro15 (from Liv International)
3/4 cup uncooked oatmeal (certified gluten free)
2 tablespoons agave nectar or several squirts of Stevia-liquid form)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup goji berries
shredded coconut to roll the protein poppers in
Step 1: Get our your food processor and put in your S blade. Add the peanut butter, the PB2 Peanut butter(already blended), Liv Pro15 powder, oatmeal, and agave nectar. Blend until oat meal is completely incorporated into the mix.
Step 2: Open lid of food processor and add raisins and goji berries. Replace lid and pulse until raisins and goji berries are incorporated into the mix but NOT broken down.
Step 3: Using a teaspoon, spoon a bite size into the palm of your hand and roll into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the mix. Place balls on wax paper inside a plastic storage container. Or roll balls in the shredded coconut and then place inside plastic storage container.
Step 4: Store in refrigerator for up to a month. Freeze for a quick grab and go snacking option.
*Using the PB2 Powder will reduce the fat in this recipe by half! And you won’t sacrifice flavor!!!
