Protein Snack Recipe

Protein Snack

I brought this protein snack to MuckFest and everyone loved it so I thought I would share it with you!

Ingredients

1 cup almond butter

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1 serving whey protein powder

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup puffed rice cereal

Directions

  1. Microwave almond butter and honey in microwave safe bowl for 1 minute, stir.
  2. Add chocolate chips and protein powder, stir until well mixed.
  3. Add almonds and pumpkin seeds, stir until well mixed.
  4. Add old fashioned oats and puffed rice cereal, stir until well mixed.
  5. Form into ~2 tbsp. size balls. ~25 balls.
  6. Place in airtight container and store in fridge for up to 1 week.
  7. Optional: After being in the fridge for a few hours, I normally cut the balls into quarters so that they are easier to eat.

~If the mixture seems too dry, you can add more almond butter and/or honey. If it seems too gooey, add more old fashioned oats and/or puffed rice cereal.

ENJOY!!!

Warning: This snack almost tastes too good! Proceed with caution!
