Oatmeal Protein Balls

Oatmeal Protein Balls

I thought I’d share this easy recipe for oatmeal protein balls with you!

As runners, we’re always on the lookout for healthy yet satisfying foods that fuel our runs and aid in our recovery. The following recipe is one that my wife Shelley stumbled across and decided to make a couple days ago. I’ve already enjoyed several of these little “power pellets” (remember PAC-MAN?) which make a great snack alongside a cup of coffee. Give it a try yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Ingredients:
1 cup old-fashioned or steel-cut oats
3/4 cup nut butter (all-natural peanut, sun, cashew, etc.)
1/4 cup milled flax seed
2 T honey

Preparation Instructions:
– Mix ingredients together in bowl.
– Roll into 1 1/4″ balls
– Eat immediately and/or chill the rest.
*While going to the work of making balls, double or triple the recipe to have plenty on hand for easy to grab snacks! Freeze for up to 1 month.
