“This recipe makes 25 to 30 walnut-size crunchy treats, delicious when they begin to melt. Just divvy them into plastic sandwich bags and stick them in the freezer. Then, instead of reaching for a processed boxful of ingredients you can't even pronounce, you will be ready with a healthy, high-protein snack.”

I submitted this recipe and wanted to let you know that it tastes even better if you freeze them overnight before serving. It's a very healthy snack or dessert for those days you are craving sugar. Thanks for stopping by! P.S.: FLAX SEED IS SUPPOSED TO BE GROUND, I SHOULD HAVE MENTIONED THIS ON THE RECIPE. UPDATE 7/15/11: for those of you that asked, but when you buy a container of protein powder, it comes inside a scoop for measurements. Usually 1 scoop is equivalent to 4 Tbsp.

This is a great recipe! I was looking for a high protein snack for after workouts when I didn't feel like making a smoothie or when I needed a sweet treat without the sugar and this is it. I used organic crunchy peanut butter but I think this would be also great with smooth peanut butter. I also think that you could use regular unsweetened cocoa powder if you don't want to use the protein powder or don't have it (a great alternative if you are making this for the kids). Of course, that decreases the protein, but still provides a healthy snack. The next time I make these, I will refrigerate the mixture first before I roll into balls because the mixture was very mushy and difficult to make into balls. No problem, easily fixed, but mine didn't turn out as pretty as the recipe submitter. They still taste great! Thank you for the recipe!

Not bad and a good way to stave off a cookie/cake craving. I did skip the flax seed since I didn't have any on hand. I think it would benefit from a few additions -- maybe mini chocolate chips and/or raisins.
