Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls
Updated: Aug 24, 2021
My favorite protein cookies! These delicious little balls are perfect as a bedtime snack when you are craving something sweet, or as a pre or post workout snack when you are running on empty. Bonus - my kids love these too! Warning -- just because these are "healthy" and a good source of protein, doesn't mean they are a free for all! ;-) Portion yourself off to one, maybe two balls, because these little guys are so good you'll want to eat more!
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup almond milk
3-4 TBSP cacao powder..depending on how much chocolate flavor you like!
1/2 cup all natural peanut or nut butter.
3TBSP of flax seeds (optional)
1/4 cup plain shredded coconut (optional)
3 cups oats
1-2 scoops protein powder(depends on the serving size of your protein..chocolate or vanilla)
Heat honey, almond milk, cacao powder in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally until it comes to a boil. Take off heat & immediately Add in peanut butter, oats, flax seed, coconut flakes, & protein powder & stir until well mixed.
