Keeping with our theme of on-the-go snacks for us moms we knew we wanted to try out the popular power ball trend. Basically a mixture of grains, seeds, nuts, fruits and something to bind it all together so you can store them in the fridge or freezer and pop some in your mouth in a rush.I am still making my chocolate peanut butter protein shake every single morning and now that its been a full year, I can safely say peanut butter and chocolate are just my jam. We already make the overnight oat version here, and now here’s a take on that flavor profile, but in ball form!
2/3 Cup Coconut Flakes (toasted is even better!)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup honey
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, cover and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Once they’re cold enough roll into balls –get your kiddos hands extra clean and let them at it, mine loved it! This recipe should make at least 20 one inch balls! If you’re looking for more protein you can easily add a protein powder, you’ll just need more honey and peanut butter to keep the right consistency!
