The Most Amazing Incrediballs

I love experimenting in the kitchen and making up new recipes and trying to put a healthier spin on some favorite recipes. Some recipes work out great and others are disgusting.  Jorge is quite the food expert so I go to him to critique my creations before giving them to anyone else!  I have seen different recipes for protein balls and decided to make up my own. My family loves them as a good little healthy snack and Stephanie likes to use them as a pre workout or run fuel.

I have named these little beauties Chocolate Peanut Butter Incrediballs. 
The ingredients you'll need are:

* 1/4 cup of oats lightly chopped in a Magic Bullet
*1/4 cup of Chocolate Protein Powder
* 1 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
* 2 and a half Packets of Truvia Sweetener
* Dash of Sea Salt
* 1 Tbsp. Agave
* 1 Tsp. Pure Vanilla
* 2 Tbsp. Almond Milk
* 1/4 cup of Adams Natural Peanut Butter
* 2 Tbsp. Mini Chocolate Chips

First gather all your supplies and lightly chop the oats in a Magic Bullet(if you have one) not too much though or you'll end up with oat flour and not as good of a texture.  Next, pour oats into a small mixing bowl and add all dry ingredients. Using a hand mixer mix until well combined. Next add  everything but chocolate chips and mix really well.  If its too moist add a little more oats or if its too dry add a tiny bit more peanut butter or Almond Milk. Not too much though because you want them to stick together.  Very last add the chocolate chips and stir really good. 

 Using a medium cookie scoop make 6 balls and place in a Tupperware and keep in the fridge and eat em up!
