(Easy to make, tastes great, satisfying, and filling)
- 1 ½ cups of creamy almond butter
- ¼ cup of honey
- 1 cup of steel-cut oats
- ½ cup of vanilla protein powder
- A few dashes of cinnamon to taste
(Makes 33 balls with 100 calories each)
Mix the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. I like to use steel-cut oats (rather than the old-fashioned rolled oats) because it gives them a satisfying soft crunch.
Add the almond butter (I like to use the kind that needs stirring) and the honey. I used a wooden spoon to mix all the ingredients. Mix well.
After mixing well, use a teaspoon to scoop out about twice that much of the mixture and roll each into a ball. Each ball is about one inch round. The balls should be soft, moist, and pliable. I place each one into a plastic container in rows (don’t place them on top of each other). I secure the lid on the container and put it on the counter for easy access and to remind myself they are there—no need to refrigerate.
Based on the number of ingredients in each ball, I estimate each ball to be around 100 calories.
