Choffy Protein Balls

We are athletic at our house and have experimented with different protein drinks, bars, and balls for both energy and recovery. These protein balls are my daughters favorite after a hockey game. My daughters favorite or almond, my sons are peanut butter, and mine are combination of almond and peanut butter or cashew. I enjoy them before and after workouts.

Choffy is brewed cocoa which promotes Lean Muscle Mass Growth. How? There is a compound in the cocoa bean called Epicatechin and when ingested help to increase follistatin levels in your body.  What does that mean?  It means that with higher follistatin levels your body can produce muscle.  Muscle burns calories, which in turn helps you to maintain body balance.

Ingredients:

1 cup Brewed Choffy Grinds
3 cups Oats
1/4 cup Whey Protein or Protein Powder
1 1/2 cups Natural Nut Butter (Almond, Peanut Butter, or Cashew)
3/4 cup Honey
1/2 cup Brewed Choffy

Directions:

Combined oats, Choffy grinds, and protein powder in a mixing bowl.  Stir in nut butter. In a medium sauce pan cook Choffy and honey over medium heat until boiling. Pour hot ingredients over other ingredients and mix well. Use a cookie scoop to make uniform size ball. Scope out onto a cookie sheet. Form into balls and refrigerate for 1 hour to set up. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
