Peanut butter and Chocolate Chip Protein Balls

I don't know about you, but in the morning I'm usually looking for something healthy and that's easy to eat on-the-go. If that's you, look no further. Check out these simple Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Protein balls. You can make a double or triple batch and put them in the freezer to have when you're in a pinch. Pair these balls with a side of fruit for a complete breakfast of healthy fats, protein, and carbs! These have been kid-tested and they are approved :)


Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups of oats

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • ¼ cup of protein powder

  • 1 tablespoon Chia seeds

  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds

  • ¼ c. honey

  • ¼ c chocolate chips

  • ¼ butterscotch or peanut butter chips (optional)

Directions:

  • Put all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix

  • Add peanut butter and honey and mix

  • Add chocolate chips and peanut butter chips last.

  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Roll out golf ball sized balls.

  • Store in the freezer or refrigerator.



Pro tips:

  • Warm up your peanut butter in the microwave before adding it to the dry ingredients. This helps the peanut butter mix in faster.

  • If the mixture seems too dry add small amounts of water to help the mixture come together.

  • Lily’s chocolate chips is a good low-sugar option.

  • Pair a protein ball with a piece of fruit for a balanced breakfast or protein, healthy carbs, and healthy fats!

  • Store in the freezer to keep protein balls fresh.

I hope you and your family love these! Let me know in the comments if you give them a try!
