There is never a bad day when there is a container full of peanut butter balls in the refrigerator. Ok, that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but they are really good. And, the recipe is simple too. Add them your weekly meal prep for week long recipe. Just remember, these may be healthIER than some other treats, but eating 4 – 5 a day, might not be the best choice.
Here’s the DIY breakdown:
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup organic peanut butter or other nut butter
1/3 cup honey
1 cup coconut flakes (we use unsweetened – they can be a little tricky to track down in the grocery store)
1/2 cup flaxseed
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1 -2 scoops of vanilla undenatured whey protein*
[add your favorite seeds too 🙂 – we love sunflower and pumpkin]
- Mix all ingredients. [it’s super sticky, and you may have to roll your sleeves up]
- Refrigerate mix for 30 minutes to create a firmer texture.
- Roll into bite-size balls.
- Keep in an air tight container and store in refrigerator.
These make for an amazing afternoon pick me up, or enjoy as a [post run or workout] snack.
