Heart Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Balls Recipe
Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the protein powder, peanut butter, maple syrup and crispy rice cereal; mix until well combined. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 1-inch balls (a little smaller than a ping-pong ball) and place on the prepared baking sheet.
In a microwave-safe dish, combine the chocolate chips and olive oil and microwave for 15-second increments, stirring after each cycle, until smooth and melted.
Carefully pour the melted chocolate into a zip-top bag or pastry bag. Cut a small corner off of the bag and generously drizzle over each ball. Sprinkle the peanuts on top of the chocolate.
Refrigerate for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the chocolate to set before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
