I keep a bag of protein balls in my freezer at all times. They satisfy my cravings for sweets and are a great on the go breakfast for my girls in the morning.
I start by mixing my peanut butter in my Kitchen Aid on medium for 1 minute. Add the protein powder, flax, and oats.
4 cups of peanut butter(any kind will do)
1 cup of vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup ground flax meal
1 1/2 cups quick oats(uncooked)
Once you’ve mixed your base add what you have on hand.
Suggestions: shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips, raisins, crushed up cereal, almonds, walnuts.
You can also make the balls with just the base by adding another cup of oats.
Mix everything on low to medium until the sides of the mixing bowl come clean.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form the dough into balls and freeze at least one hour. Remove balls and store in a ziploc bag in the freezer. Makes 24 to 36 balls depending on size.
