Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls

Two things I love about today.

[Number 1] See below

Pin Me!

[Number 2] I TAUGHT MY FIRST YOGA SCULPT CLASS TODAY! Well, a partial class! I was one of four teacher trainers who got to teach a full class..TO REAL PEOPLE! For my sections of class I taught:

Sun A.

Squats.

Core.

It was awesome! Did I mention that it was awesome :) Today’s class was a free, so over 45 people showed up. ME. TEACHING YOGA. TO 45 PEOPLE. I was beyond nervous. My heart was flying and my palms were sweaty. When all eyes were on me..it magically all went away. Adrenaline kicked in and it just felt like I was on top of the world! I can’t wait to actually start my yoga instructing career :) To say I am excited is just an understatement. 

Peanut Butter Balls definitely fit into this excitement. I brought a batch in to my yogi loves to enjoy pre/post sculpt. This recipe is extremely simple, healthy, and delicious. They are…

-All natural

-gluten free (when made with certified gf oats)

-made with no added sugar

-healthy treats

Seriously. I may or may not have eating half the batter before I could even bring them in…This is probably why I ended up making 2 batches. One batch is a plain peanut butter version and the other has a cocoa, chocolaty twist.

Obviously the darker ones are the Choco Choco Chip Peanut Butter Balls and the lighter ones are made with just peanut butter! Here’s how easy they are to make…

Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients

-1/2C quick cooking oats (certified gf)

-1/4C all natural peanut butter

-1/4C honey, raw

-2T flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose)

Choco Choco Chip Peanut Butter Balls

Ingredients 

-1/2C quick cooking oats

-1/4C all natural peanut butter

-1/4C honey

-2T cocoa powder

-3T semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method
1. In a small food processor, process oats for 15-20 seconds. You don’t want to turn your oats in to oat flour, rather coarsely chop them up.
2. Add the rest of your ingredients and process for about a minute, or until it becomes doughy. (You may need to add a squirt more of honey if it is still too dry.)
4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out the dough and role between your palms. Each batter make 8-9 balls, depending on how much dough you eat ;)
 
 

 One more thing to add to my list of things I love about today.

[Number 3] I LOVE living with someone who has fun kitchen accessories. Look at this adorable plate Ashley has…This is when playing with your food is more than acceptable.

Do you have any fun kitchen accessories/gadgets?

Random/Fun question of the day: If you had to choose a single food as your last meal, what would it be? This is oddly a heard question, but I think I would eat an entire jar of MaraNatha Almond Butter.
