Scott’s Homemade Protein Balls

by Vashte on August 29, 2012

Thank you to Aimee-Rose for making this recipe and posting this shot of her final product!! Looks delish!!!!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of uncooked rolled oats (porridge) OR Muesli
  • 1 ½ cups of your favourite protein powder
  • ½ cup of almond butter
  • 5 tablespoons of agave syrup
  • ½ cup of raisins

(if raisins don’t fire you up you can leave them out) or try cranberries, or craisins- or any dried fruit you like!

How to make it work:

Mix the lot together in a bowl (easier said than done), then press the mixture out evenly into a baking dish. Throw into the fridge for about 2 hours then cut up into small bars or squares. Or use a muffin tin and segment them before you stick them in the fridge!  Enjoy. Note there’s no dodgy Soy in these bars so they’re guaranteed not to obliterate your thyroid!

This snack is best after a hard training session, or heavy weights. Just remember all food has a calorie profile, and just because it is a ‘healthy’ snack does not mean you can eat copious amounts. There is still a very high natural sugar/fat content and carb content in this snack- so one is more than enough for most people. :)
