Peanut Butter Protein Balls with Flax Seeds
A friend gave me recipe for protein balls that incorporates flax seeds. These balls are good before or after a workout, or as a healthy snack anytime.
3 cups of whole oats
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup honey
1/2 to 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup flax seed
Mix all ingredients well. Put the bowl with the mixture in the freezer for five to 10 minutes. Once balls are firm, roll into one inch balls.
If balls are too sticky to roll, put them back in the freezer for 10 more minutes. Put balls on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for a couple of hours.
Take out of freezer and put them in a freezer bag to store. Makes around 40 balls.
You can substitute other ingredients for the semi-sweet chocolate chips. I used raisins in mine. Yummy!
