Want to know a little secret? I always have some combination of protein balls in my fridge to snack on when I need an energy boost or a quick bite to hold me over until dinner. Energy balls, protein balls or snack balls- no matter what you call them, they are a healthy treat to keep your hands out of the cookie bag and keep the weight off. Cue the fireworks!
With 4th of July right around the corner, I thought I’d share one of my favorite protein ball recipes with you. It’s the perfect snack to take with you if your traveling on a plane or by car or just share at the backyard party you plan to attend. No matter what your holiday plans are, make these protein balls and keep them with you for a healthy, quick snack.
Serving varies due to size of balls
1 ½ cups rolled oats
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons chia seeds
½ cup tahini
¼ cup water or dairy-free milk
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Mix well. Scoop and roll into balls and store in airtight container.
Ok, It's your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below and share a healthy snack you’re going to make for the fireworks.
