Every time I make ‘Proteenies’ I swear to make them more often. They are so easy to make and are the perfect snack on the go or post dinner pick me up.
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup pea protein powder*
1/3 cup rice malt syrup**
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or cacao nibs
1tbs chia seeds
- Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. If mixture is too wet add extra coconut.
- Roll balls into desired size. I prefer tablespoon sized balls for more of a substantial snack.
- Place in a sealed container in fridge for 3 hours or until firm. Store for up to 6 days in fridge.
* Use your preferred protein powder or simply go without.
** Honey or golden syrup could be used alternatively.
