Protein Balls

These little protein packed balls are dynamite! And so easy that my 9 year old is the main maker of them!

Protein Balls

1 cup peanut butter or almond butter
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
4 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp black chia seeds
1/3 cup shredded coconut

In a microwave safe bowl melt the honey and peanut butter in 30 second increments stirring until smooth. When combined allow to cool for 5 mins and then stir in the oats and flax meal. Then stir in Coconut and chia seeds. Allow to cool for 5 more minutes and then stir in the chocolate chips so they don't melt.  Scoop into 1-inch balls and store in an air tight container in the freezer.
