Classic Protein Balls

Classic Protein Balls

Energy bites are a popular homemade snack for a reason – they are super easy to make, delicious, and energizing! You can find so many variations on the internet, from brownie flavored protein balls to salted caramel, matcha, and even key lime – the possibilities are endless. With so many recipes out there, it can be super difficult to chose! However, I can promise these classic protein balls will satisfy. Sometimes all you need is a little peanut butter, honey, and dried cranberries… the combination never gets old! Grab some rolled oats out of your pantry, get your hands a little sticky, and turn your healthy snacking game up a notch!

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 mins

Ingredients

 1 ½ cups rolled oats
 2 scoops protein powder
 1 tbsp chia seeds
 1 tbsp flax seeds
 1 tsp cinnamon
 ½ cup nut butter
 3 tbsp honey
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ¼ cup raisins
 ½ cup dried cranberries
 1/4 to 1/2 cup water

Directions

1

Mix rolled oats, protein powder, cinnamon, chia seeds, and flax seeds together in a large bowl.

2

Add nut butter, honey, vanilla, raisins, and dried cranberries.

3

Stir in 1/4 cup water, and add more if necessary (consistency will vary based on the protein powder you are using). You should be able to stir the mixture without extreme effort, and it should roll easily into balls.

4

Scoop the mixture with a spoon or melon baller and roll into balls with your hands.

Tip: Wash your hands if you are having trouble rolling them. I typically rinse my hands at least twice during this process because nut butter coated fingers make it difficult to form nice balls!

5

Store in an airtight container in the fridge and enjoy!
