It can be challenging to resist sweets & get in enough healthy calories!

This recipe is the perfect solution for both busy people who need to eat on-the-go and lovers of peanut butter (okay and chocolate)!

 

 

For many women in particular, eating can feel like a chore – especially for fit, active women. Why? Well, women tend to take on the world and condition themselves (subconsciously) to do so on minimal energy. I say – it’s a woman thing.

As a Nutritionist, Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach, I see many women that would eat properly if only they had time and guidance. That is why we search for recipes right? We all want a little guidance and stamp of approval.

So without further ado – here are HEALTHY, DELICIOUS no-guilt Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Balls that are both taste tested and nutritionist approved!

PREP

  1. Mix together oats, chia seeds, flax seed, protein powder and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice into a food processor or mixer until all ingredients are finely mixed or chopped down. It is okay to use a mixer and keep your oats rolled (my personal favorite way when I`m short on time)
  2.  Add water slowly until all ingredients are mixed.
  3.  Mix in chocolate chips
  4.  Roll final product into 1″ energy balls.
  5.  Eat!
  6.  Refrigerate or Freeze
