I make these balls weekly for our family and if we run out, everyone notices. Incorporating these balls or something like protein balls into your diet is a huge step towards cutting down on costs, reducing your carbon footprint, eating mindfully, and having a plan so that you are never without fuel. Remember, one of the most important steps towards your body trusting you and working efficiently is to keep it fueled properly.
1/2 C Peanut Butter
1/4 C Coconut oil
1/4 C honey
1/4 C golden monk fruit (optional- if not using I would increase the honey to 1/3 cup)
2 scoops protein powder
1/4 C Chia seeds
Up to 2 C oats (Start by adding 1 cup at a time. Depending on your oats, you may need more or less than 2 cups. I find quick oats make the best texture but all oats with the exception of steel cut will work).
1/4 C cocoa nibs or mini choc chips
Combine wet ingredients into a glass bowl. Microwave for about 20-30 seconds. Mix well and add chia seeds and protein powder. Add more honey or monk fruit to taste and add oats slowly, 1 cup at a time. Mix well. If mixture is too dry, toss in some water, just a little bit at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
Keep refrigerated - these are best when cold.
