I was obsessed with this awesome place in the Seattle Convention Center called Juicy Cafe. In fact, I tried to replicate their taco bowl here. Today, I attempted to make their Monkey Balls (though I know I used things they don't so I guess I could call them "What I Had In the Pantry Balls"). I LOVED these things before and after my workouts (and they served as awesome snacks on-the-go). Since I'm still on this really fun (NOT) elimination diet, I made sure to use ingredients that don't contain any of the common allergens (gluten, dairy, nuts, corn, etc). It took about 20 minutes to make and package total. Woohoo! Here's what I did:
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Raw Protein in vanilla
2 cups gluten-free uncooked old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used the Enjoy Life brand because they're free of those allergens I mentioned though I'd probably be fine with 85% cacao chips)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tsp cinnamon powder
Mush all of the ingredients together. Slice up 10 pieces of cling wrap. Form 10 balls (using an ice cream scooper to form them might be useful) and wrap them in the cling wrap. Put them in the fridge. That's it!
Try it out. If you come up with a fun concoction, let me know!
