POWER Protein Balls

If you are anything like me, you love FAST and EASY recipes that are NUTRITIOUS and KID-FRIENDLY too! And this is ALL of those things! (swelling of Hallelujah chorus) This recipe is perfect to make for on-the-go snacks, pre or post work-out fuel, or a ready-made unprocessed snack the whole family will enjoy!

I got this recipe from The Book of Beast that came with my Body Beast workout program (which I love!!)

  • 2 TB sunflower seeds, without shells

2 balls= 171 calories, 12g fat, 2g saturated fat, 2mg cholesterol, 113 mg sodium,  11g carbs, 2 g fiber, 4g sugars, 8g protein

*Changes I made:

I didn’t have natural peanut butter, so I used Jiffy crunchy peanut butter

I used a large banana

I used regular oats instead of the quick-cooking kind

I used 2 TB pumpkin seeds because I didn’t have sunflowerseeds

And we couldn’t wait a whole hour before eating these, so we ate some without refrigerating first
