Snack On The Go: Oatmeal Raisin Protein Balls


Hi friends! I wanted to share the most recent favorite recipe to hit our kitchen with you all! B and I are both snackers and are always in need of a great to-go option! I've also recently tried to become a lot more conscious about what we're eating to promote overall health as well and to take baby steps to getting in shape for the wedding {doing all the squats!}. With that in mind I found a great recipe on Pinterest and put my own twist on it to get a little extra protein in each day!! You can switch up the ingredients and make them your own which I love!! They are so easy to make too! These are definitely going to become a staple in our fridge for the Spring and Summer and they really are so yummy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup raw nuts (I use walnuts)

  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder

  • 1 cup old-fashioned instant oats

  • 1/2 cup raisins (can also use dried cranberries, blueberries, or goji berries)

  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions:

  1. In a high power blender or food processor, mix the raw nuts and protein powder and pulse until finely ground and well combined.

  2. In a stand mixer (or a large mixing bowl) combine nut/protein mixture, raisins, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, oats, and spices until well combined.

  3. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop mixture and roll into 1 inch balls. The mixture should stick together, if not, add a little more peanut butter.

  4. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Enjoy!!

We hope you guys give these try and would love to hear if any of you try your own recipe!

This recipe was derived from one found on Five Heart Home.
