High Protein Peanut Butter Balls
Most likely, 2 scoops of PP is two servings of whatever kind of PP you are using. Look on our container. I used a chocolate egg white protein powder and since I didn't have the scoop anymore, I used my food scale, and measured it out in grams. If you don't have pp in the house, substitute with dry milk powder; as this is also usually high in protein as well. Just be careful mixing it in, if the milk powder is not instant, it could clump up on you.
I halved the recipe and since I only had 3/4 banana (64g), I added some raw honey (93g), I also added 2 oz of chopped walnuts, 2 oz of salted pistachios and one chopped Chocoperfection dark chocolate bar to the mix. And instead of adding the flax seed to the mixture, I rolled the balls in ground, black chia seeds, because I wanted to use them up. Chia, like flax seed needs to be ground up for maximum utilization. From what I've read on line, Chia is even better than Flax seed, but at more than 4x the cost of Flax seed, it's unlikely that I will get more.
Despite, my given changes and the adding of honey to my batch, the nutrition information is similar to what is given here. My yield was 25 balls. I used a 2T. ice cream scoop as well, so much more uniform. You can buy different size scoops in restaurant supply stores, like Cash&Carry.
Even with all that extra honey, my nutritional information on this recipe came very similar to what is stated.
