Protein Energy Balls

Protein energy balls

It’s officially the holiday season! If you thought pregnancy stretched you to your limit, you may not have been through a holiday season with little ones yet. Hang on! It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

When it does get to be too much, sit down, relax, and enjoy some of these amazing no-bake protein energy balls with a side of lowered expectations. It’s a great snack for toddlers to “help” make!

Mom’s Milk Protein Energy Balls
1 C Oatmeal
1/2 C Flax Seed
2 Tbs your favorite unbrewed Coffee Grounds
3/4 C Almond or Peanut Butter
1/4 C Honey
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/4 C Dark Chocolate shavings (optional)
1/4 C Cranberries or favorite dried fruit (optional)
1/4 C Coconut shavings (optional)
Mix ingredients together with a spoon or your hands. Put in the fridge for 10-20 minutes to allow to set slightly, then remove and use your hands to form into 1-inch balls. You can also press into a pan and cut into squares for energy bars.
If you have food allergies, substituting ingredients is easy. You can substitute any chips for the chocolate chips, or use cacao nibs for a vegan-friendly version. Any nut better can be used in place of almond of nut butter, and agave works well as a vegan-freindly sub for honey.
Take it easy on yourselves this holiday season, mamas!
