Protein Power Balls

     Hi everyone! There are quite a few recipes out there for protein balls, and this is mine! Some days I have a difficult time balancing my macronutrients, and this is a perfect way to get more protein! These are both crunchy and sweet and all around delicious.


Recipe

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used pea protein)
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 3/4 cup oats or quinoa flakes
  • 2 tbsp seeds of choice (I used pepitas)


Steps:
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Shape into 24 balls.
  • Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
*Note: You can use all almond butter or all peanut butter instead of half and half

Makes 12 servings of 2.
