Almond Protein Balls

Danette May turned me on to these great snacks. Packed with protein and low in calories, they fill you up to prevent more unhealthy snacking, and carry you to your next meal. Add dark chocolate chips for an even tastier (kid-friendly?) snack.



3 cups oatmeal (chopped in a blender)
1 cup organic almond or peanut butter
1/4 cup organic honey
2-3 scoops protein powder
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs (optional)
unsweetened coconut to coat (about 1/2 cup)

Mix blended oatmeal, almond butter, honey, cacao nibs, protein powder and water. If your mixture is too crumbly, add more water. Roll into balls with your hands, coat with coconut (you’ll have to press a little to make it stick) and store in tupperware until you are ready to eat.
