protein balls

These protein balls are probably my favorite snack- as well as my kids. They think they are cookies! They are the perfect after lunch treat- or post run protein fix.

Protein Balls

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2/3 cups unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened peanut butter (read your labels! It should just contain peanuts)
  • 1/4 cup Ghirardelli Chocolate 60% Cacao chips
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Refrigerate for 30 minutes

Roll and compress the mixture into 1 inch rounds and place in an air tight container. Refrigerate and enjoy for up to one week… if they last that long!
