The ISOBall

4th of july recipes

Makes: 24 Bite Sized Balls

Ingredients:

  • 3.52oz ISOPASTA Rice
  • 3/4 c whole, pitted dates
  • 1 c peanuts
  • 1/4 c cacao powder, plus more for rolling
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao nibs
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, cover your dates with enough hot tap water to fully submerge them. Allow the dates to sit while you cook your rice.
  2. Cook your ISOPASTA Rice according to the package directions. In a fine mesh strainer, drain your rice.  Run cold water over the rice, shaking it around in the strainer to cool, for about a minute.  Add the dates to the strainer, too, and run a little more cold water over everything until it’s nice and cool.
  3. In the bowl of your food processor, place all your remaining ingredients and pulse for 30 seconds. Scrape down the bowl and continue to process for another 30 seconds, scraping down the bowl a second time.  Continue processing until the ingredients are very smooth and start to congeal into a large ball.
  4. Using a 1 tbsp melon baller or cookie dough scoop, scoop out one ball at a time and roll it in your palms until it’s smooth and round.
  5. Place some extra cacao powder in a shallow dish and roll your ISOBALL in it to coat, tapping off the excess cacao powder with your fingers. Repeat this process with the rest of the ISOBALL mix.
  6. Your ISOBALLs will fit nicely in your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers. Store them in your fridge and enjoy!

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies

4th of july recipes

Makes: 16 Brownies

Ingredients:

For Brownies:

  • 1 avocado
  • ½ c unsweetened applesauce
  • 3/8 c maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • ¼ c almond flour
  • ¼ c soy flour
  • ½ c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

For Cream Cheese Swirl:

  • 4 oz Neufchatel (low fat cream cheese), softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 egg

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚ and spray a 9×9 square pan with your favorite nonstick spray.
  2. In a food processor, blend together the avocado, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla until no lumps remain and the mixture is smooth. Scrape the avocado mixture into a mixing bowl and whisk in the eggs.
  3. Add the flours, cocoa, salt, baking powder, and hemp seeds, and stir briskly until the mixture is smooth.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese filling ingredients until very well blended.
  5. Spread about 2/3 of the brownie batter in the prepared pan and top with all the cream cheese mixture. Dollop the extra brownie batter on top of this and spread it a little to give the brownies a marbled effect.
  6. Bake your brownies for around 25-28 minutes, depending on your oven. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Don’t overbake them or you risk turning the cream cheese filling into a baked egg custard! It’s ok if the cream cheese is still a little gooey when you take them out.
  7. Let cool completely, cut into 16 squares, and enjoy! Be sure to store these delicious brownies in the fridge – they will fit beautifully into your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers.
