Over the years, there’s one thing my friends ask for more than anything when it comes to my mom…her number. Kidding! Okay, not really, but the SECOND most requested piece of information from my hot mama is her Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls.

My mama loves her some balls (protein balls—get your mind out of the gutter!), and after we went on Good Morning Arizona and she shared her long-loved favorite, my phone was blowing up with requests for a full recipe and how-to from the legend herself!

I’ll be honest…I’m kind of regretting letting the cat out of the back about just how amazing Mama Lane is. With all her fancy tips + tricks, amazing recipes, and secrets to reversing aging, this might just become the Lauri Lane show with me as the trusty sidekick. I thought the obsession with my mom would end with high school, but no such luck. 😉

Again, of course, I’m kidding. I absolutely adore this lady and am so lucky she shares her wealth of knowledge on basically EVERYTHING with me, including this recipe! So let’s get started!

Kitchen + Outfit Details:

Marble Cutting Board, Glass Mixing Bowls, 3 Piece Scoop Set (perfect for cookies + ice cream), Black Measuring Spoons (available in multiple colors), Madewell Tie Front Tank (available in tons of colors and on sale under $30), Madewell Jeans

Let me tell ya’, healthy living really runs DEEP in this family! And I’m so very grateful to my mom for that! Mom even used our Chris + Heidi Chocolate Low Carb Meal Replacement Shake Powder in this recipe, you guys. Gotta’ love her! These balls are great when paired with a chocolate protein shake too!

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Place oats, peanut butter, honey, Chocolate Meal Replacement Shake Powder, and chocolate chips in a large bowl and stir to combine. It might seem thick at first, but keep mixing. Feel free to use your hands!
  2. Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls. You should get about 24 balls.
  3. Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.
  4. For one serving, enjoy three energy balls!

Is there anything better than peanut butter and chocolate? I’m 100% sure that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have proven just how perfect the pairing is. BUT with a few simple tweaks to your go-to snacks, you can be enjoying this beloved treat while staying on track and saving on time. That’s a win, win, win.

Special thanks to my mama for her help on this recipe. Now we’re off to enjoy these snacks and the summer sun.

xo,

Heidi
