Dive Buddies

Updated: Mar 31, 2020

It’s lobster season! That means lots of early morning snorkeling looking for the little bugs. I’m not a fan of eating a meal before we go out but I do like a nice little pick-me-up before we head out and, quite frankly, we enjoy these any time of the day when we’re searching for a sweet treat that we can feel good about!

Ingredients (makes about 12 balls)

  • 1 cup peanut butter (we prefer crunchy)

  • 1/2 cup banana flour (any flour will do, I choose to use banana flour because of its health benefits. It has lots of potassium for energy and is a resistant starch which is great for your gut flora)

  • 1/2 cup quick oats plus 1/4 cup for coating (use what you have or what you like)

  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts (great source of heart healthy omega fatty acids, anti-inflammatory and good fiber source)

  • 2 tbsp flax seeds (soluble and insoluble fiber source, omega fatty acids and a good portion source)

  • 1/3 cup chocolate morsels (good for the soul…as if we needed an excuse to add these in)

  • 2 tbsp agave or sweetener of your choice (blended dates, honey, stevia)


How to

  • This one’s easy. Start with your wet ingredients in a bowl (agave, peanut butter) and add your hemp hearts, flax and banana flour. This will insure you get all the good stuff in!

  • Slowly add the oats to thicken the mixture into that of a cookie dough. Once you've achieved a good consistency (this may require more or less oats then recommended) fold in the chocolate morsels.

  • Roll your heart out! You choose what size you want ‘em (no judgment) and roll into balls, then coat in quick oats. I often make balls about the diameter of a quarter which we will eat when we’re going out diving, and then some smaller balls for the times I just need a little sweet treat

  • Stick them in the freezer and snack as you please!
