These 5 ingredient protein balls will have you reaching in the freezer all day long. Great for runners with a boost of protein and mixture of complex and simple carbs. A perfect post workout boost with 4g of protein per ball.
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup dates, pitted
- Garnish with flaked sea salt – optional but recommended 🙂
- Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and mix on high for 2-3 minutes until a large ball is formed. If it’s not forming, keep mixing.
- Using a scooper or spoon, scoop out 15-18 balls onto a sheet pan. Garnish with sea salt if desired and place in the freezer for at least 10 minutes before eating.
I would recommend storing them in the freezer.
