No Bake Protein Balls

I’ve been trying to make my own snacks lately instead of buying prepackaged snacks and chips from the store. We are gone a lot on the weekends to lacrosse games and baseball tournaments and I always pack lunch and snacks. This was a hit and all were gone before the end of the day. I had seen several recipes for protein balls on Pinterest and I figured I could do this myself so I gathered my ingredients and got to work.
- 1 cup Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup Ground Flaxseed– I just bought flaxseed and ground it up in my coffee grinder. This has a lot of fiber. You can also sprinkle on fruit or add to smoothies.
- 1/3 cup Honey
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
- 1/2 cup Toasted Coconut- Here’s how to toast it here.
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds– This is a Super Food. Just a little has a lot of protein and fiber!
Note: I eyeball honey and peanut butter because I don’t like adding those ingredients to measuring cups. Trying to get it out, to add to my bowl, is such a mess!
Mix thoroughly with your hands and form into bite sized balls. I ended up with twenty, but you may have a little more or less depending on the size you make. I stored in the refrigerator until we were ready to leave for our day.
This is a really basic recipe. My neighbor added more chia seeds into hers and vanilla protein powder. It’s up to you!
