How To Make Peanut Butter Protein Balls

From Aim True Author and Yoga Instructor Kathryn Budig.

I love peanut butter, accessible protein, and quick recipes. Combine these three and, voila: the ultimate snack recipe is born! There’s no oven to heat, minimal prep time, and these little protein bombs will satisfy kids and adults alike.


1 cup rolled oats

1/2 heaping cup smooth peanut butter

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1/4 cup hemp seeds

1/4 cup chia seeds

pinch sea salt


Combine maple syrup and peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice) into a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Fold in remaining dry ingredients.

Line a casserole pan with parchment paper. Using your hands, roll up individual balls roughly the size of a golf ball. Place onto the parchment paper. Cover and refrigerate for an hour OR just go ahead and eat them! Keep refrigerated for a firmer texture or if you live in a warm environment.
