Protein Power Balls

power-balls-1 power-balls-2power-balls-3These are my favorite on the go, protein packed snacks! As a “flexitarian” (I’m pretty much vegetarian on my own, but I’ll eat seafood & chicken socially), I’m always looking for efficient protein sources.  When my protein intake is high, my energy is too!  Eating mostly vegetarian, it’s easy to fall into the trap of over-processed meat substitutes. So I’ll make these throughout the week (they are even better frozen!) and pop a few as I’m running out the door.  I usually roll them in chia or hemp seeds, but rainbow nonpareil sprinkles are a nice way to get wild!!

Protein Power Balls

4 scoops of your favorite protein powder (I love this one)

1 cup of peanut or almond butter

1/4 cup of honey

Chia seeds, hemp seeds, sprinkles, coconut flakes (or anything you like)

1) Mix the first three ingredients together by mashing with a fork or in your food processor.  Mix thoroughly so you get a sticky wet texture.  If your mix isn’t able to form a sticky ball, add a little more nut butter.

2) Form 1 inch size balls with the mix with your hands.

3) Put your seeds, sprinkles or flakes in a small bowl and roll each ball in the bowl until covered.

4) Place covered balls on tray.  I like to freeze them as well–it gives them a really interesting texture to bite into, and they last for a long time (that is if you don’t eat them all the first day!).

Makes about 12-14 power balls.

Enjoy!
