Pre-workout Snack Balls

Recipe by Kate Orlando, RHN 

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp vegan protein powder of choice
  • ¼ cup unsweetened mini chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • ½ cup organic almond butter or peanut butter
  • ¼ cup freshly ground flax meal
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ¼ cup local maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp almond extract or ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch ground Himalayan rock salt

Instructions

  1. Add all of your ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine. Full disclosure: I use my hands to mix.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 45 minutes. Once chilled, form desired bite-sized balls - be prepared for a little bit of effort, the mixture tends to be crumbly.
  3. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
