Mock Potato Candy Protein Bites

Mock Potato Candy Protein Bites

Introduction

I was being lazy and not wanting to fix a snack before I exercised but wanted some protein. I had tried a recipe for a no bake bar using peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate protein powder, so thought I would try making it without the oats and with vanilla protein Powder. When I took my first bite I was immediately taken back to my childhood and the potato candy my mom used to make at Christmas. Now I can have it without guilt when I need a quick protein stack.

Ingredients

    8 scoops Andrew Lessman Vanilla Secure Soy Protein Powder
    1/4 Cup water
    1/4 Cup smooth peanut butter plus
    2 T smooth peanut butter

Tips

If you don't want to make the pinwheel rolls, you can just mix the ingredients all together and divide into two piece for each serving by rolling into balls.


Directions

Mix protein powder, water and 1/4 cup peanut butter until mixture holds together. Mixture will be stiff but should hold together when squeezed. If it does not, add water 1 teaspoon at a time until it holds together.
Form a ball with the dough and place on a piece of plastic wrap or wax paper. Top with plastic wrap and roll out to an 8x11 rectangle. It will be about 1/4 inch thick.
Remove top piece of plastic wrap and spread remaining 2 Tbsp peanut butter over the entire piece, leaving the top 1 inch of the longer side plain. Using the plastic wrap, with plain edge away from you start rolling into a log.
Smooth seam and wrap with the plastic wrap and place in fridge for 1 hour to firm up (or freezer for about 10 minutes if you don't want to wait.)
Cut into 16 equal pieces, serving size is 1 piece.
