Protein balls are a great way to get your daily dose of protein, but they also have other benefits. 

  1. They are the perfect snack to have between meals and when your PMS munchies take over because they help keep you feeling full. 
  2. Protein balls can also help you lose weight or maintain your current weight because they are a low-calorie snack. 
  3. You can use them to maximize the different nutrients that you need during different times of your menstrual cycle. In fact, they're especially great for Boosting Your Energy Levels In the Week Before Your Period!
  4. They're perfect little energy boosters to help Avoid the 3 pm Energy Crash Cycle!
  5. They’re family-friendly, so you can make a batch for yourself and not have to worry about what’s in them when your kids ask for one (or 5)!
  6. Lastly, protein balls make a great post-workout snack because they help rebuild and repair muscle tissue. 

So, if you're looking for a healthy snack that will help you stay energized and fit, give protein balls a try!

The recipe below contains an easy, 10-minute no-bake protein balls recipe that you can take with you on the go or just enjoy at home! There are a variety of flavors you can use for protein balls, so for this one, we’ll stick with a classic—chocolate peanut butter. [source]

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup natural peanut butter

1/4 cup honey or maple syrup

2 scoops, about 50-60 grams of chocolate protein powder

2 Tablespoons dairy-free, no-sugar-added chocolate chips

 

Directions:

  1. Place oats, peanut butter, honey, protein powder, and chocolate chips in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  2. Getting the mixture to combine takes a little arm muscle and it may seem too thick at first, but it will come together as you keep mixing. I used my hands to knead the dough near the end and that seems to help.
  3. Once combined, use a small cookie scoop to scoop and form the dough into balls.

Note: You can also press this mixture into a baking pan, and then cut it into healthy granola bars!

Store in a covered container in the fridge or freezer.

That’s it!!! And like I said, you can do this with a variety of different flavors such as Almond Joy, Cinnamon Raisin, and many more.
