Salty, Chocolatey, Protein Packed Goodness
So I spent the day yesterday recipe testing & getting shit done. It was a nice way to being my week. Seriously, there is something to be said about getting shit done & feeling well rested by the end of your Sunday. On top of that, one of my biggest downfalls/greatest strengths is I love to do list and I love crossing things off my to do lists even more. So yesterday was extra satisfying. Throw in brunch, a massage, an outdoor workout & some quiet time before bed= Happy Kerry.
Since it's been a while since I have been able to escape to the outdoors (and god, are the mountains and ocean calling my name), I have been trying to find the joy in the little things. It's a simple practice that I do every morning- write down 3-4 things that I am grateful for and/or looking forward to. Some days the practice is really easy, other days it is not. Usually, I repeat some things everyday which I don't think is a bad thing. But, I have started to challenge myself to write one new thing that I am grateful for that is unique to that day in particular-- harder than I thought! Anyone do this? Any tips on how to appreciate the little things?
Anywhoooo, on to the goodness that are these protein balls. Seriously, so freaking good. I tweaked an old recipe that I have been making for a while & boosted it with some superfoods.
Pretzel Almond Butter Protein Balls
3 cups of pretzels (any kind!)
1 cup of coconut flakes
1/2 cup of chia seeds
1/2 cup of protein powder
1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal
1 tablespoon of AukaLife recovery blend
1 scoop of collage peptides
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of almond butter
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of local honey
1. Place 3 cups of pretzels in food processor or blender and grind until pretzels are chopped up-- I still leave some larger pieces
2. Place the rest of the ingredients in a bowl together and mix
3. Add pretzels in
4. Make into balls of any size. This makes a good amount
Super easy to make & Super Easy to take on the go! One of my ALL TIME favorites for work, for hiking and for breakfast in Betty.
