I was super happy when I got Kristine Weber's new recipe and work-out book delivered to me at work yesterday. When I got home in the evening, I knew immediately that I couldn't leave it until the next day before making something. And so, I decided to go for one of the sweet recipes, because I'd already planned what to make for dinner.
These snicker marbles make for lovely little healthy treat, packed full of protein and healthy fats. I may or may not have had all of them as soon as they were chilled and ready to eat...I mean, I had to test them right? It was for the blog's best! These go perfect with a cup of coffee, mmm....
(Makes 6-7 small marbles, 310-350 (with agave syrup) calories for the lot!)
4 tbsp PB2 (light peanut flour)
1 tbsp (1/2 scoop) chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp Walden farm's pancake syrup OR 1tbsp agave syrup
A few drops Stevia vanilla (optional)
1-2 tbsp water, until you get a slightly sticky dough
15g (3 squares) dark chocolate (+1tbsp water), for dipping
1 tbsp chopped peanuts for sprinkling
- Mix everything except the chocolate and chopped peanuts together in a bowl. Add a tiny bit of water at a time until the though is a little bit sticky, but still manageable. Roll out into a sausage and divide into 6-7 bits.
- Roll them into little marbles and set in the fridge to chill for a little bit. In the meantime, melt the chocolate with 1tbsp water in a little ceramic bowl in a water-bath in a pan. Chop up the peanuts, and you're ready for the next step!
- Take the marbles out of the fridge and dip in the chocolate, place them on a serving plate as you go along and top with the chopped peanuts. Set in the fridge again until the chocolate is set, for about half an hour - if you can wait that long!
The book is packed full with great tips about how to focus on what is important in life - to keep in shape and to enjoy life without over-thinking your diet and exercise plan. It also features a lot of helpful texts that are really motivational and downright thoughtful and honest. Kristine is such a wonderful girl! Ahhh, and don't get me started on the rest of the recipes, I can't wait to try them out!
