If you like Reece’s peanut butter cups, you’ll like these. They are super easy to make and full of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Best of all you never have to turn on the oven!
Made with only 5 ingredients: peanut butter, old fashioned oats, protein powder, honey and chocolate chips. They are great for breakfast, a snack or dessert. Best of all, my kids love them!✨
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup protein powder (I used bad.athletics chocolate protein powder). If you don’t have protein powder you could sub it out for flax seed, or you could add both.
1/2 cup nut butter of your choice (I used crunchy Peanut Butter)
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1-2 Tbsp honey depending on how sweet you want them
1 Tbsp water (add more if the mixture is too dry)
Optional add ins: Shredded coconut, raisins, cranberries, seeds
➡️ Mix everything in a big bowl (I melted my peanut butter in the microwave a little bit before mixing it in). Roll into balls and refrigerate for 20 minutes. 😊 Makes about 8-12 balls
