No Bake Protein Balls

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