I find myself more likely these days to run errands than run laps, but that can still be a perfectly acceptable form of exercise. In fact, it’s probably about one of the best you can get, especially when it never ends. It’s as if life is an energetic bunny. I, on the other hand, am not like a bunny. I need help to keep up. However, life doesn’t slow down just because you are tired or hungry. No, life just speeds up faster.
ZonePerfect® Nutrition bars are perfect for a high energy, always on the go lifestyle. Available at Walmart in a variety of flavors, ZonePerfect® Nutrition bars are great tasting healthier snack options packing a pick me up, lift me up oomph! with no less than 10 grams of protein and a good source of fiber. They’re a snack that’s as awesome as you are! Or, as awesome as you want to be after your 2nd wind.
We picked up boxes of ZonePerfect® Nutrition bars in Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate Almond Raisin. These bars are great on the go right from the wrapper, and a convenient way to satisfy cravings whenever they may strike.
Sometimes, though, life only gives you enough time for a quick bite to snack and seize the day. Thus, these Chocolate Protein Packed Yogurt Truffles combine the best of the bars in a delicious chocolate morsel.
These no-bake Chocolate Protein Packed Yogurt Truffles are very easy to make, as well, using only 4 ingredients. Melting the chocolate chips in the microwave is seriously the hardest part.
Once the chocolate chips are melted, add a tablespoon of almond butter, ¼ cup of Greek yogurt, and ¼ cup of chopped up ZonePerfect® Nutrition bars in your choice of flavors.
Chop up your bars into small pieces. Like I said, we used Cinnamon Roll and Chocolate Almond Raisin, but they have a number of varieties that would work well in these truffles. 2 bars, one in each flavor, was just enough for all of our truffles.
Chill the chocolate mixture until it’s just hard enough to roll into a ball. The chocolate should still be fairly soft, however, so you can coat the truffles in the remaining chopped up ZonePerfect® Nutrition bars.
Now, I’m not promising these Chocolate Protein Packed Yogurt Truffles will have you running laps again. But, they just might get you on the track.
- ½ cup milk chocolate chips (you could use dark chocolate or white)
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- ¼ cup Greek yogurt
- 2 ZonePerfect® nutrition bars in your choice of flavor(s)
- First, chop your nutrition bars into small pieces. Set aside in bowls for coating.
- Melt chocolate chips in a microwavable safe bowl in 30 second intervals.
- Stir in almond butter, yogurt, and ¼ cup of the chopped nutrition bars.
- Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes, or until just set enough to roll. Using a melon baller, roll into balls then through the chopped up nutrition bar.
- Keep refrigerated.
