No Bake Protein Balls

This post contains affiliate links.

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.

No Bake Protein Balls

 

Protein Balls

  • 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.

Protein Balls

This is a really basic recipe.  My neighbor added more chia seeds into hers and vanilla protein powder.  It’s up to you!
