No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Balls

No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Balls

Introduction

I have been looking for a long time for a protein bar, or at least something close, that didn't taste either flat or just plain-old bad. Tweaked this one to get around my tree-nut allergies, and finally have the recipe I'd been seeking. These are yummy, and my teenage daughter even likes them!

Ingredients

    1 C dry oats
    2 scoops vanilla UMP protein powder
    1/3 C chocolate chips (optional)
    1/3 C raw sunflower seeds (can substitute any kind of chopped nuts)
    1/4 C dried cranberries
    3 Tbsp natural peanut butter (can substitute other nut butters)
    3 Tbsp Ground flaxseed
    1 Tbsp honey or agave nectar
    1/3 C nonfat milk (can substitute almond or soy milk)

Tips

I used Beverly International UMP (Ultimate Muscle Protein) for the recipe calculations.

Nutritional count is with the chocolate chips.


Directions

Mix the oats, protein powder, chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, cranberries, and flaxseed in a fairly large bowl until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the peanut butter and honey. Add the milk a little at a time, stirring after each addition until smooth.

Pour the milk mixture over the oat mixture and thoroughly combine (I use my hands.)

Form into 10 balls just a little bigger than a golf ball.

Refrigerate to store.

Serving Size: 1 ball
