My number one recipe that I get asked most often is how to make PROTEIN BALLS. I love having these ready in my freezer so I can have a healthy snack to grab & go at any time. Here is how I do it and know that you can do your own version, add extra ingredients like chia seeds, flax seeds or any kind of nuts & dried fruit.
My Recipe: 1 CUP Honey, 1 CUP Peanut Butter (or any nut butter), 2-3 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder, 1/4 cup each: chopped walnuts & dried cranberries, 2-3 CUPs Oats.
Variations: slivered almonds, chopped pecans, chia seeds, flax seeds, dried apricot, raisins, dates, dried blueberries or cherries.
Prep: Get out a Cookie Sheet & line it with wax paper or parchment.
Directions: Heat Honey and Peanut Butter on stove in large sauce pan on low, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and add in first nuts & dried fruit. Start to add 1 cup of oats to mixture at time stirring in until you get the right consistency. I spray my hand with olive oil and then I use a tablespoon to scoop out “dough” to roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. When you are finished place cookie sheet in fridge for at least 1 hour to set. I like to use snack bags, and put 3-4 balls in each bag and store in freezer.
