These Oatmeal Protein Balls are easy to make and full of yummy healthy ingredients that the whole family is sure to love. They make the perfect school snack for the kids, mid-day pick-me-up at work, or even paired with yoghurt and fruit for a quick breakfast.
TIP If you are a sweet tooth, try dipping a few balls in melted chocolate or white chocolate for an extra yummy treat. If you are nut sensitive, you can use a seed butter, spread or tahini in place of the almond butter spread. This recipe also suggests our Pure Protein Complete Vanilla Spice, however if you are a chocolate fan, you can even substitute it for our Chocolate Protein Powder option.
NOTE The recipes suggests 3 tbsp of coconut milk, however you are more than welcome to add more as needed until the mixture holds together and is easy to roll into a ball. Be careful not to add too much as the balls will not hold their shape.
