There are several ways you can make these protein ball. I want to make these as healthy as I can and without preservatives and other unwanted food additives. I made this batch with home Made peanut butter. Yum!!
Homemade Peanut Butter
My kids LOVE these delicious protein balls. So I wanted to share them with you! They are great for parties, dessert, a quick pick me up snack.
Peanut Butter Protein Balls
Makes 48 cookies
- 1 Cup Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, or Seed Butter
- 2/3 cup raw honey or agave
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup flax meal
- 2 cups oats (use Gluten Free oats if needed)
- 1 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
- 48 large Dark Chocolate chips
- OTHER OPTIONS:
- ¼ mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Roll into 1 inch balls. Press down on a plate or cookie sheet until slightly flattened. Press a large, dark chocolate chip into the middle of each cookie. Refrigerate or keep at room temperature.
**If you are adding mini chocolate chips vs. large chips then mix chips in the mix before rolling.
This takes 5 minutes or less to mix; 5-10 minutes to roll into balls.

Have a wonderful day!
