Here is one of my favorite protein snack recipes that my mom makes. They’re packed full of protein, omega 3’s, and fiber along with other tasty treats such as chocolate, cranberries, honey and peanut butter! So not only are they good for our bodybuilding process, but heart healthy, satisfying, and delicious!
Calories: 132 per serving, 4 grams of protein
- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup extra-crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup raw honey
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
In a food processor, pulse the oats, peanut butter, honey, chocolate chips, cranberries, sunflower seeds and flax seeds until fully combined. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Form balls form the mixture (about 1 ½ tablespoons each) and place them on the baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
