No matter how hard I try to eat healthy I have a serious sweet tooth. With my cravings it’s more like sweet teeth! I can’t get enough. One of my all time favorites are peppermint patties. Yum!! So I decided to make something similar.
I thought these turned out really good. I may have eaten 2 or 3 as soon as they were finished, but what surprised me was that my boyfriend and son loved them. My son, sure, I can convince him to try things by not telling him it contains a certain something he doesn’t like but not my boyfriend. He’s picky. Especially when I attempt new healthy recipes. Despite the fact that my boyfriend and son don’t like coconut or dark chocolate, they loved these!
So for these I used two different kinds of protein! One scoop of each. Of course you don’t have to. I do suggest using something along the lines of vanilla though. I used Organigrowth vanilla and Muscle Pharm cookies and cream protein. These are two of my favorites to bake with along with Cellucor protein.
-2scoops of protein
-1/4tsp peppermint flavoring
-3/4c shredded coconut
-3 to 4oz dark chocolate
-Start with your milk and peppermint into a bowl. Add both scoops of protein powder and mix well.
-Add in your shredded coconut and mix well. The batter will be fairly thick.
-Line a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper.
-Drop big spoonfuls onto parchment paper. Mine made about 7-8 balls.
-Put in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
-When they’re pretty firm pull them out and melt your dark chocolate a microwave safe dish. Stirring every 30 seconds or so.
-Dip each protein ball into the chocolate and set back on parchment paper til the chocolate has harden. (The bottoms may be a little sticky still when you pull them off of the parchment paper.)
-Keep them in a container in the fridge and enjoy!
Stay healthy and active!
