Protein Balls

I saw this recipe of Trisha Yearwood’s show on Food Network.  They are great snack to grab before a workout, or for a breakfast on the go. I add chocolate protein powder to up the protein. Recipe and photo courtesy of Food Network.

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1/2 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons flax seed

In a food processor, pulse the oats, peanut butter, honey, chocolate chips, cranberries, protein powder and flax seeds until fully combined. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Form balls from the mixture (about 1 1/2 tablespoons each) and place them on the baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
