Protein Balls

Trying to find a healthy, unprocessed, protein-packed snack is pretty hard, and that’s why I decided to make my own. Here is a super easy and customizable no-bake recipe for protein balls!

Servings: 20 balls
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (dry) Yevo oatmeal or old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs (optional)
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • dash of cinnamon

Combine ingredients in a bowl (be sure to mush the banana beforehand). Roll into small (approx. 1 inch) balls with your hands and place on a pan or in a tupperware. Put in fridge to solidify and then enjoy!

I often add cranberries, cherries, protein powder, chopped nuts, or different spices to create different types depending on my mood and on the day.
