Peanut Butter Protein Balls

These Peanut Butter Protein Balls are a healthy snack that takes just minutes to make - with 4 grams of plant-based protein per ball! No food processor or protein powder required.


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Old-Fashioned Rolled Oats

  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter (or any nut/seed butter!)

  • 1/4 cup Honey

  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flakes

  • 1/4 Flax Seed

  • 1 Tbsp Chia Seed

  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Optional: dark chocolate chips, raisins, chopped nuts


DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (you can warm up the nut butter in a pot to make it easier to work with).

  2. Mix well with a spoon, and then mix together with your hands.

  3. Put mixture in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to slightly harden and form together.

  4. Remove from refrigerator and use hands to create oatmeal & peanut butter balls.

  5. You can serve these right away, or transfer them to an airtight container and store them at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. (They can be frozen for up to 3 months, too!)


Recipe Notes:

If you use old-fashioned rolled oats, these balls will have a hearty, slightly chewy texture. If you want something a little softer and more uniform, try using quick-cooking oats instead.


*Choose organic oats if possible due to their possible glyphosate exposure.
