If you’re struggling to hit your daily protein target, try these dead simple protein balls. These make a great afternoon snack.
- 2.5 cups almond butter, softened (we recommend Justin’s brand)
- 2 scoops whey protein powder, snickerdoodle flavor*
- 1/4 cup chia seeds (optional)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, solid
- 3-5 tsp MCT oil to bind
Mix all ingredients well and shape into golfball sized spheres. If the consistency is too dry, add a bit more coconut and MCT oil. You are looking for a stiff peanut butter like consistency for rolling.
Makes about two dozen.
*Editor’s note: Vanilla and chocolate protein powder also work well. Try dipping these in dark chocolate for a dessert! Of course, make sure you adjust the nutrition information accordingly.
