Oatmeal Almond Raisin Protein Balls

These are so quick and easy to whip up!  In less than 20 minutes these go from pantry ingredients to the fridge.  These little protein balls are great for those rushed mornings where you may be tempted to “hit a drive through” on the way, or on busy work days when you might reach for a sugary carb loaded snack.

These are great as they are but feel free to experiment with other ingredients like Craisins, dried tart cherries, chopped nuts, chia seeds, etc…

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 ¼ cup gluten free steel cut oats
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Directions:

    1. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients until completely combined.  (I found it was easiest to mix by hand)
    2. Use a cookie dough scoop or a teaspoon to scoop out dough and then roll each scoop into a bite sized ball.
    3. Place each ball on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper.  When all are rolled out, place in fridge to chill for an hour then transfer to covered container and store in the fridge.

     

Makes approx 20 balls.  2 balls per serving.
