Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bites

IMG_2594As kids, most people weren’t the biggest fans of oatmeal raisin cookies because they were the ‘healthy’ cookie and really just deceived people to thinking there were chocolate chip cookies…sneaky little raisins. Well, I had the opposite issue. I would get super upset when oatmeal chocolate chip cookies deceived me into thinking it was oatmeal raisin!

Nevertheless, those oatmeal cookies really weren’t much healthier than its cookie counterparts, but they could certainly and easily be made healthy! Thus, these balls…and many other delicious oatmeal raisin treats were born! These are the perfect snack because they are packed with protein, slow-digesting carbs and totally curb your sweet tooth!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 4 scoops vanilla protein powder (2 servings) – We used arbonne and about time
  • 1/4 cup currants
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsps almond butter
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup almond milk or water…may need more until consistency is reached

Directions:

  • Combine oats, protein powder, currants, cinnamon and sea salt
  • Next, pour in 1/4 cup water (or almond milk) and stir
  • Then add in honey, almond butter, and melted coconut oil.
  • Stir until sticky enough to roll into balls. You may need to add more water depending on your protein powder!
  • Roll into balls and enjoy!
