No Bake Oatmeal Protein Balls

Boy oh boy do I have a yummy snack recipe to share with you guys!  I love playing around with ingredients in the kitchen and coming up with something delicious.  I’m also a huge fan of easy recipes and portable snacks.  Enter: no bake oatmeal protein balls!

These poppable treats would be delicious for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack, dessert, or even before a run!  They’re packed with yummy and healthy ingredients and are super easy to make.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop protein powder (I used vanilla flavored brown rice protein)
  • 3 TB honey or agave
  • 1/4 cup Justin’s maple almond butter
  • 1/4 cup Justin’s vanilla almond butter
  • 1.5-2 TB chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • Cinnamon, to taste
  • 2-3 splashes cashew milk (you could also use almond milk)

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients into a bowl and stir until well combined.  I started with a splash of cashew milk and added more as needed to get everything incorporated.

  • Using a spoon or cookie scoop, roll the mixture into balls and refrigerate for at least an hour.  I was able to get a dozen using my cookie scoop.

  • After the hour is up, go to the fridge, open your mouth, and chow down.  Try to exercise self-control and not eat all of them, but hey, I’m not one to judge.

I hope you guys enjoy these!  Let me know if you try them 🙂

    Ohhhh girl. These look amazing and perfect for running fuel! I live on those enjoy life chocolate chips. I said I wasn’t going to buy any this week, but I might have to make an exception for these! And who doesn’t love no-bake?

    They are so good, you have to make them! Those chocolate chips are addicting–at first I wasn’t going to add chocolate chips, but then I realized how crazy that sounded. Thank goodness I came to my senses!
