It’s been a while, but I’m back! Due to popular request from my co-workers, I am sharing the recipe for these yummy, and very popular in my office protein balls. I make a batch every Sunday, and bring them into work.. they never make it though the whole week. But that’s okay! These are a great snack though out the day, especially after a work out, or when you are craving something sweet, but don’t want to overindulge. Here is what you need!

1 cup Steel Cut Oats

2 cups Old Fashion Oats

1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup Flax Seeds

1/2 cup Chia Seeds

1/3 cup PB2 (powdered peanut butter.. so delicious)

1/2 cup Honey

4 scoops/servings Chocolate Protein Powder

1 16oz jar Peanut Butter

1/2cup Coconut Sugar (optional if you want more sweetness)

1 cup Salted Almonds (totally forgot to put in the picture)

 

Here is what you do:

Put the chocolate chips and steel cut oats in a food processor and pulse until the chips are broken up and the oats are broken down. Steel cut oats have a grainy, chewy texture that need to be ground finer than the rest of the ingredients. If you do not like the texture of them, use 3 cups of Old Fashion Oats and just pulse the chocolate chips by themselves.

Once you have pulsed the oats and chocolate chips.. put everything else into the food processor and run it until everything is combined.

Put the mixture into a bowl and finish mixing with your hands. This is the fun part! If it is too dry, add more peanut butter. If it is too wet, you can grind up some more old fashioned oats. The mixture should not stick to your hands, and should easily form into balls.
