I felt like you guys needed this quick, healthy snack recipe…or at least I did, to help offset all the sugary treats busting out of my kitchen! Healthy peanut butter powder poppers are an easy, one bowl snack recipe, that take 5-minutes to make, no special equipment and only require a few ingredients.
These poppers are on the healthier side…so note: they taste healthier, and are not as decadent as some of my other desserts tend to be. I want to share with you guys a diverse collection of recipes here on the blog, that I hope you make…something for everyone. I know not everyone has a passion for baking from scratch like I do, and a lot of people are looking for healthy recipes and dinner recipes with meal plans, so I am trying to include a little bit of everything to make everyone happy!
So if you are looking for a quick, healthy snack to have on hand to get you through those 3PM slumps and night time sweet tooth calls, then you definitely need to try this recipe! This recipe was made on a whim after I got a request from a friend of mine, Chad, asking for some type of peanut butter protein energy ball. Chad works with James, and we all work out at the same gym. I am working on another energy ball recipe, in different flavors, after talking with Chad about exactly what he wanted! But for now, I think this popper is pretty damn good for a healthy-ish treat!
This is the peanut butter powder I used…chocolate flavored of course! But you can use any brand or flavor peanut butter powder you like. What is peanut butter powder? It’s an alternative to peanut butter that has 90% less fat than regular peanut butter. You just add water to the powder to get it to a peanut butter-like consistency.
Chocolatey poppers! And my gorgeous plate and bowl are from Wilmax!
