I’ve been living on protein balls lately and they’ve been a lifesaver for me!
Oatmeal Protein Balls:
1 cup uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter (any nut/seed butter will work)
1 scoop of protein powder (I typically use Vanilla in these)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup flax seed
Mix everything together until it forms a dough and roll into balls. Refrigerate.
You can add in anything you’d like – cranberries, chocolate chips, etc.
Chocolate Protein Balls:
2 cups almond or coconut flour
2 cups pitted dates
3 scoops protein powder
1/2 cup – 3/4 cup of water
Pinch of salt
Mix everything in food processor except water. Once the dates have broken down slowly add in the water a bit at a time. Depending how dry or moist your dates are you may or may not use all your water. Once a dough begins to form stopping adding in the water and roll into balls. If it is too sticky roll in coconut (unsweetened!) Again, you can fold in any add-ins you’d like here – chocolate chips are my favourite!
