No Bake Oatmeal Protein Energy Cookies/balls
One of my WONDERFUL staff members brought in a recipe that I wanted to share so I wanted to do the same and return the favor to YOU!
*Keep in mind, you can add or subtract different ingredients to your liking that will work best for you
- 1 1/2 cups rolled or quick oats
- 1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder (~2 scoops)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)* Make sure it is drippy. If not, you may need to add in extra liquid at the end.
- 3 T natural honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup raisins, chocolate chips, craisins or preferred add-in
- 2-4 T Liquid (i.e -almond milk, milk, water etc…)
- Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon, and chia seeds to a large bowl.
- add in peanut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
- Add in raisins (or preferred add-in). Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly.
- Slowly add in liquid 1 tablespoon at a time and using hands (get dirty!) combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape.
- Roll into balls using hands.
- Place in a container to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
- Store in fridge until ready to eat. Lasts up to two weeks in fridge!
