Thank you to Linda Shale for her recipe! These are amazing!!!
Now remember, even when snacking, we must mind our macronutrient ratios for the Metabolic Typing Types which are:
Protein Type: 70% proteins & fats (40/30) / 30% carbohydrates
Carbohydrate Type: 60% carbohydrates / 40% proteins & fats (25/15)
Mix-Type: 50% carbohydrates / 50% proteins & fats (30/20)
*In General: Protein Types should avoid Gluten, Protein & Mix-Types should have high fiber, low-to-medium starch carbs, and sprouted grains.
*There is no calorie counting in the Metabolic Typing Diet. Reason being, if you eat for your body type, your body will know when to stop. No over-eating. No cravings. No depriving.
Go buy The Metabolic Typing Diet book and take the test to find out what you are!
What you need:
6 cups Whole Almonds
2 cups Powdered Egg Whites
½ cup Creamed, Spun Honey, melted
¼ cup Wheat Germ Oil
¼ cup Flax Seed Oil
1 pk Milk Chocolate chips
1 pk Semi Sweet chips
Put it together:
Grind almonds. You can use a nut grinder, but I used my little Cuisinart- such a strong little guy!
Mix in powdered egg whites – stir until evenly distributed.
Melt honey (in hot water or microwave) then add oils and whisk together till blended. Pour over almond mixture and fold and stir.
Mixture will be dry, but can be pressed together in to balls (note I say pressed into balls – it is a bit too crumbly to roll into balls)
If using a chocolate melter, put chocolate chips on to melt before forming balls.
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and place formed balls on cookie sheet.
Once chocolate is melted, carefully cover each protein ball with chocolate. I use two teaspoons to move ball around in chocolate and then lift out.
Place chocolate covered protein balls back on cookie sheet and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Once hardened protein balls can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
Makes 50 to 60 protein balls
The 6 cups of nuts measurement are for whole nuts – not sure what it is once ground.
I used a mix of raw and dry roasted almonds (50% less salt dry roasted from Trader Joes)
Linda uses a chocolate melter, but you can also melt chocolate with a double boiler (I used this) or in the microwave – just make sure NO moisture gets into your chocolate, otherwise it may not set right.
Now learn what happens to your food after you swallow it, and how you are about to get energized with your Protein Power Balls 😀
