As a vegetarian since I was 8, I'm always looking for new ways to add extra protein into my meals. I have no idea what took me so long to make some protein balls as snacks but I am so happy I finally did! Here's my recipe for these delish little snacks!
What I did first, was make a base for the balls that way I could make multiple different flavored treats!
-1 cup Peanut Butter (chunky or smooth)
-1 cup quick oats, uncooked
-1 scoop of protein powder (I used unflavored for this one)
-1 tablespoon honey
-1 tablespoon chia seeds
-1 teaspoon of cinnamon
I threw it all into one bowl & mixed it up really well. You want to make sure everything is evenly incorporated.
From there, I separated my based into 3 bowls. I wanted to try out 3 different kinds of flavors that all worked well with my base!
- Chocolate chips
- Chopped walnuts
Once you've mixed in your different toppings, throw your bowls into the refrigerator for about a half hour! You want them to be a little bit firmer
so that making the balls will be easier.
Then you just roll 'em! I was able to get 5 balls from each bowl but your sizes may vary.
ou don't need them too big because they are pretty filling! I pop 2 at a time for snacks & they get me through that lagging part of the day.
They're super tasty, super easy & I love how you can mix & match with different flavors. I used ingredients I happened to have on hand at the time so I need to brainstorm other varieties!
The thing that I love about these aside from versatility, is they're such a quick snack to make. You make them on a Sunday & you have a snack for your entire week (you can store them in your fridge for about 7-10 days). They're little, but filling & I feel like you can experiment with them so that there is something for everybody!
It's a great way to add a little more protein & yumminess into my diet!
