We have some major growing girls up in our house! I feel like I’m feeding these two constantly! I thought I get smart this school year and get ahead of grab and go snacks. First on that list by popular demand was our Chocolate chip peanut butter protein balls. They are the BEST! The girls get a good solid dose of protein with all super healthy ingredients sneakily tucked in. #momwin!! These are our favorite after school snacks and afternoon treat for mommy! They are decadent!
Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Protein Balls recipe
1 cup oats
2/3 cup organic coconut flakes
1/2 cup organic peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed ( we’ve used whole flaxseed and it’s totally fine)
1/2 cup chocolate chips ( could also swap for dried fruit)
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbs chia seeds
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl thoroughly with spatula. Once mixed, scoop about a T size amount and form a ball. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. They might fall a part a bit at this point but it’s okay. Refrigerate for approximately an hour to firm up. Keep refrigerated!
