I’m back with more healthy eats, up next Protein Power Balls!  You are probably thinking one of two things at this point.  Either: “Oh no this blog is healthy now and I only came here for delicious treats!”  or “Sweet I love healthy options to help me keep my new years resolutions!!”  Well I have good and bad news for you both.  1) I won’t always be posting super healthy! I am trying to learn a little balance in my life and there are still lots of cookies and cocktails to be made.  2) I actually have started to thoroughly enjoy eating healthy and won’t be stopping the low cal posts either 🙂 …. just trying to make everyone happy!! If you are looking for a healthy alternative to a store bought energy bar, you have to try these Protein Power Balls! As well as document exactly how I am managing to lose some weight while not eating bland and boring.   Lately my day of eating has been a bunch of small meals.  On my way to work I will have a green smoothie I whip up with half a banana, lots of spinach, some almond milk and sometimes I throw in PB2 or protein powder.  Then at about 10 I have another small breakfast, either a bagel thin with egg whites or overnight oats.  I try to have a small lunch at 12 that is less than 250 calories, then 2 afternoon snacks and dinner!  When I plan it all out it is nice to know that I will be eating about every 2-3 hours.  These Protein Power Balls are a welcome addition to my routine!  They are a great afternoon snack before I go to the gym after work.  They are filling with good nutrients to give you that boost you need to finish a day strong.

    Can you double the oats and leave out the rice crispy? I would think so. Can’t have the cereal right now. Thoughts?

    I made these and love the flavor. But followed the recipe completely and they turned out so sticky, couldn’t even roll them in a ball, they just stuck to my hands. What am I doing wrong? Suggestions??

    I had to add water to get it to come together but these were delicious. Even my 16 yr old son chowed down on them. I also substituted half of the flaxseed powder for wheat germ, used dark chocolate chips and the chocolate flavor of PB2.

    Just made this for the first time. I added brown rice puffs cereal from Whole Foods, used unflavored organic whey protein powder and ground flax, and kept everything else the same. Came out really sticky and hard to make into balls – but I see from the comments it might help to add more oats or keep my hands wet or both! Either way, when I licked my hands, the taste was yummy. I put them in the freezer to harden up a bit. It was tempting to add more than three chocolate chips! Thanks for the recipe!
