These power balls, brought to you by trainer Brittany, are a great mid-morning or afternoon snack! They are packed with protein, healthy fats, smart carbs, and loads of vitamins! Additionally, they take almost no time to make and can be stored in the refrigerator or frozen for a healthy snack days or weeks later.
Recipe yields about 11 power balls.
1 cup earth balance coconut and peanut butter spread (or other natural peanut butter)
1/2 - 3/4 cup organic honey
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1 scoop chocolate protein powder (she uses the Spiru-tein brand)
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
Mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon in a large bowl until mixture reaches a paste-like texture. Then using a tablespoon, scoop out spoonfuls of the mixture and form into small spheres. You should end up with about 11 power balls at the end. Finally, store your chocolate peanut butter power balls in the refridgerator or freezer so that they do not melt or go bad.
