Okay people, if there's one thing I ALWAYS have on hand, it's these. I pop one in when I need an energy boost, before a workout, after a workout.. you get the picture. I sometimes crave these over cookie dough... (did I just say that...?)
They are full of protein, healthy carbs, and soooo delicious! I know there are a million recipes out there for these, but I've tweaked this one to the point of perfection. Trust me on this!
You will need:
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 c. raw peanut butter
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
3 Tbsp. semi-sweet dark chocolate chips (*you can also substitute chopped nuts here instead)
1/4 c. raw honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 scoop protein powder 1 tsp. chia seeds
Mix together, roll into small balls (yeilds ~20 balls), put on wax paper or tin foil, and seal in container in fridge. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before eating.
