Now, I already know that the thoughts that go through my head are outlandish and ridiculous, but this one takes the cake. After making No-Bake-Peanut-Butter-Chocolate-Protein-Energy Balls, I thought to myself, "wow this is such a good after school snack that the kids would love, and at the same time, they'd get a little bit of protein, so it isn't too bad for them...I'd be such a good housewife." Shocked by my own thoughts, I immediately followed this thought with, "JK I'm a strong independent woman that don't need no man."
That being said, I'm still really proud of the 21 babies I made, so, I thought I'd share the recipe. Besides the clean up that I'm avoiding with this blog post, this was the easiest thing I've ever made. All you have to do is throw these ingredients in a large bowl, mix it up, roll it into a ball, and freeze it. Easy-peasy lemon squeeze-y. ENJOY!
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
- 5 scoops organic pea protein from Trader Joe's.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 2/3 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
This made me 21 balls, so the calories are based off (whole recipe)/21.
