oat power balls

By Emily.  This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, but all opinions are my own. 

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.Peanut Butter + Oat Power BallsI 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!

Peanut Butter + Oat Power BallsPeanut Butter + Oat Power Balls

1 Cup Quaker Original Old Fashioned Oats

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

Peanut Butter Oat Power Balls


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! Peanut Butter Oat Power BallsThis 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!

WATCHING: Tonight we’ll all be glued to our televisions watching Shark Tank!! It’s always a fun show to watch but tonight some of our very dearest and best girls Shelly & Kara will be debuting their swimsuit, Raising Wild. The Utah girls will be partying with them and I”ll be all alone on my California couch rooting them on!!! Also they’re having a killer Shark Tank Sale so get them before the whole world wants a piece of this action.

WEARING: I’ve been posting all over the damn Internet about these sunglasses for months but now they’re on sale for $66!! They’re sunglasses so nice I’ve bought them twice. For real! I have the Black Matte and Matte and either one are incredible. You won’t see them this cheap again or for very long.

Obviously flannel is always the rage in the Fall but man oh man amazon is killing it with this selection. EVERY color imaginable and only $9-12 depending. Unreal. Order all the colors.

Have you seen Sarah Jessica Parker’s new line? It’s insane awesome. And while a higher price point, it’s flawless as all SJP things are. This bootie is unreal and I’m LIVING for this Olive color for Fall.

These jeans I wear every day. Thats NOT an exaggeration. They’re so perfect because they/re high rise, distressed and the perfect cropped ankle. Nuff said.

DECORATING: I wasn’t going to decorate for Fall (who am I kidding) and then I went to Target. Mic drop on ALL their fall decor.
