No-Bake Protein Energy Balls

If you know me well then you likely know that my husband and I bought a Peloton bike for each other for Christmas. It has been the most amazing way to get a cardio workout in that is fun and right in the comfort of our own home. With full-time jobs, a photography business, and three sons setting time aside to travel to and from a gym is not an option. With our Peloton and full set of weights and other equipment we make it happen here at home. One of the instructors, Emma Lovewell, has her own blog where she features some most delicious and healthy recipes. These No-Bake Protein Energy Balls are a hit for breakfast bites with some hard boiled eggs or for a snack in between meals. They’re pretty filling and super healthy! If you’ve been needing to add some extra fiber into your diet, then these are sure to do it.

No-Bake Protein Energy Balls

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (or Vegan protein)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp flax seeds
1/2 cup smooth natural almond butter (or any nut butter)*
1 tbsp raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup chocolate chips, raisins or preferred add-in
2-4 T liquid (unsweetened almond milk, coconut, soy, etc.)
1 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut

Prepare

1. Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon, chia and flax seeds to a large bowl.
2. Add in almond butter, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
3. Add in chocolate chips (or preferred add-in). Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly.
4. Slowly add in milk, using hands (get dirty!) combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture feels too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape.
5. Roll into balls using hands.
6. Roll balls into coconut flakes to coat.
7. Place on parchment paper in a container to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
8. Store in fridge until ready to eat.
