The founders of YOR Health are raving about a new recipe circulating throughout their office: the YOR Chocolate and Peanut Butter Protein Balls. Packed with flavors and featuring their popular YOR Shake Chocolate, these delicacies are a standout at any party or gathering during the holiday season.
Q: What are the ingredients in the chocolate and peanut butter protein balls?
YOR Health: Besides chocolate and peanut butter, of course, this recipe includes honey, steel cut oats and unsweetened shredded coconut. Exact measurements can be found on our website at yorhealth.com. The recipe is for 10 servings and so easy to make!
Q: How are these ingredients mixed together to create the finished product?
YOR Health: Simply place all ingredients into a mixing bowl and blend with a spatula. After this mixture becomes thick, divide it into 10 portions and roll these portions into miniature balls. As a final step, add some extra shredded count to the top and put into the refrigerator to chill.
Q: Is this a healthy alternative to many of the snacks found on today’s market?
YOR Health: In a single serving size, consumers receive a significant dose of protein: 3.4 grams, to be exact. The chocolate and peanut butter protein balls contain just 2 grams of fat and less than 1 gram of sugar – impressive, given how tasty these desserts really are. One more note: Each serving is only 70 calories.
Q: Can you explain why protein is so vital to my diet?
YOR Health: Protein is found everywhere in the body – skin, hair, bones, muscle and most any tissue or body part. Lack of protein may cause decreased immunity, loss of muscle mass and growth failure. Respiratory or cardiovascular systems may be compromised as well.
