Hi, guys! You know I am ALL about the protein balls, and we almost always have a batch in our fridge. They’re just the perfect protein-packed snack to keep the hangry away, if you know what I mean!
Today’s recipe is almost always the foundation of my protein balls. I use this same ingredient combo and measurements again and again as the base, but I often switch up the variety of nut butter, flavor of protein powder, and other “optional” ingredients, so they’re rarely the same thing twice. This also means that you can make these protein balls nut-free, dairy-free, or gluten-free! They’re so easy to make and always turn out well – it might just be the only protein ball recipe you ever need! I hope you enjoy it!
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 cup creamy nut butter of your choice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup protein powder of your choice
- Optional: Spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), sea salt, vanilla (or other flavor) extracts, mini chocolate chips, etc.
Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl until all of the protein powder is fully absorbed. The batter might seem a little dry, but just keep mixing. Then, roll the batter into 12 balls. Store in an airtight container with lid in the refrigerator.
