These little Zenergy balls truly are Amaze Balls, and are a power pack of yumminess and goodness. Keep them on hand for those mid morning/afternoon snacks and they are PERFECT as a pre-workout snack. I like to make up a batch over the weekend and store half in the fridge for the first few days of the week, and the other half in the freezer to pull out for later in the week 🙂
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter OR ½ Cup Nutella
1/2 Cup Honey OR ¼ Cup Honey & ¼ Cup Maple Syrup
3/4 Cup Chocolate Protein Powder
1/3 Cup Oatmeal (quick cooking oats work best)
1/2 Cup Coconut Flakes (+ more to roll them in!)
1 Tblspn Chia Seeds (I generally use white, but black are fine too)
1. In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and honey and heat in microwave for about 45 seconds.
2. Mix in oatmeal and protein powder. Then mix in coconut and chia seeds.
3. Form into small balls and roll in additional coconut flakes.
4. Refrigerate for 1 hour and enjoy!
Makes about 25-28 balls – Keep in fridge or freezer
