SESAME PEANUT BUTTER BALLS
I love honey sesame sticks, but those calorie laden, sodium-filled little naughties don’t do me any favors! I did a mash-up of those little loves of mine with another favorite – peanut butter – and created these semi-sweet, semi-savory, completely satisfying little balls. Take the time to deeply toast your sesame seeds – I promise you it will be worth it in the flavor department, and it adds almost no time to an already quick recipe. Store these little balls in your fridge in your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers and reach for one whenever you need a quick snack.
I hope you enjoy this delicious addition to your healthy ISO lifestyle!

- 6 tbsp peanut butter
- 6 tbsp almond meal
- 4 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
- In a dry pan over medium heat, shaking the pan often, toast your sesame seeds until they become fragrant and turn a shiny tan color. This is a quick process, so don’t leave your seeds until they’re done. Spread your toasted sesame seeds on a plate to cool slightly.
- In a small bowl, stir together the peanut butter and almond meal until well combined. Using a teaspoon or small melon baller, scoop out a dozen balls of even size. Roll each ball in the sesame seeds until well coated.
- Store in the refrigerator in your Isolator Fitness Meal Prep Containers and enjoy!
