PB & J PROTEIN BALLS
What are you doing to stay sane this week? I'm cooking up a storm and getting outside as much as possible to clear my mind. I'll also admit that there's been quite a bit of stress eating involved!
These protein balls are one of my favorite snacks to have on hand... they're totally customizable and take just ten minutes to make. Most homemade protein balls contain honey, dates, brown rice syrup, or maple syrup. Not terrible ingredients, but I'd rather save the sugar.
The main components of this recipe are:
oats: my favorite oats are a gluten-free variety from Bob's Red Mill
protein powder: Plantfusion and Owyn have so many great flavors
powdered nut butter: I like Naked Nutrition and PB2 Pure as they doesn't contain added sugar or salt, other nut varieties like almond also work
non-dairy milk: Elmhurst all the way!
frozen fruit: I used raspberries for this batch
