Who doesn't love peanut butter and jam!? These Peanut Butter and Fruit Protein Balls are a nice way to enjoy the flavors you love while getting in a little extra protein! They are the perfect snack to give my kids before their athletic games, and I absolutely love them as a quick pre or post-workout snack for myself! Since one ball is 135 calories, go ahead and pop a few for a healthy snack.

Recipe: PB and Fruit Protein Balls

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Yield: 15 servings
Serving size: 1 - 1 inch ball

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried fruit (we used dates - seeds removed and pulsed in food processor)

  • ½ cup natural peanut butter

  • 1 cup large flake oats (not instant)

  • ¼ cup ground flax

  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 3 Tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a large bowl.

  2. Mix until combined. I like to use my hands and knead the mixture into a big ball. If mixture is a little dry, slowly add a little more almond milk, about 1 tsp at a time. You do not want the mixture too wet.

  3. With clean hands, pull apart about 1 Tbsp full and start forming 1-inch balls.

  4. Place balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

  5. Place and store prepared balls in the fridge or transfer to a freezer safe container.
