Campfires, tents, banjos, harmonicas...okay so maybe we aren't actually camping, but the best part of camping has to be the S'Mores right? Who doesn't enjoy graham crackers, Hershey's chocolate and roasted marshmallows?! Well, if you live a fit and active lifestyle you have a hard time making this a habit. But why do we need to give up everything we love? We don't! That's why we created the S'Mores Stuffed Protein Cookie Balls featuring RedCon1 MRE Lite in S'Mores flavor.
These may go down as one of our greatest creations here at the FIt Kitchen. Featuring a versatile protein powder, MRE Lite from RedCon1, you can get solid texture and flavors since it bakes so well. The S'Mores flavor just adds to the overall experience of the treat.
We will admit, it looks like this should contain 500 calories per Cookie Ball. That's what makes this awesome. It doesn't contain eve 1/2 that! Each ball, which is filled with dark chocolate and marshmallows, contains less than 150 calories per ball with 7g protein per treat!
The carbs primarily come from graham cracker. We couldn't replace the staple in the traditional treat. We kept that, but we elected to use sugar-free syrup to keep sugars low. We also went with a higher quality butter in Kerrygold, which is rich in healthy fats. Kerrygold butter also tastes better, which adds to the overall flavor profile of these balls.
The best time to eat this is right out of the oven. However, if you can't, toss them into a microwave for :10 seconds and the molten middle is back in action. As you can tell from the video and the photos, this is the part we look forward too.
A graham cracker exterior which is filled with molten chocolate and marshmallow in the interior makes this an unbelievable treat for any fitness enthusiast.
Think you can't have campfire treats? Think again. Our protein packed S'Mores Stuff Protein Cookie Balls are a must-try for anyone and everyone. They are so good you will make them again and again. No camping required.
