The other day, I posted a Bento that contained one of my newest creations!! Protein balls 🙂
I have seen quite a few recipes around the interweb, most of which sound yummy, but I fancied just making it up as I go along, it’s much more fun that way.
So for people who enjoy reading other peoples experiments and would want to make similar yummy protein ball thingies, here are the ingredients I used:
– Unsalted Peanuts
– Peanut Butter
– Milled Flax Seed
– Oats (any type)
All I did was put the dates in a blender (with the chopper attachment) and ‘blended’ them until they were diced finely. Then I added all the dry ingredients to the same blender (excluding the peanut butter), blended again. Then a slowly added peanut butter and continued blending until I got the correct consistency for making into balls.
Not very precise measurements (sorry again!) but they were so good!
After making them into fairly small balls, I kept them in a sealed container in the fridge and they’ve lasted over a week. I try to ration them out because they are so yummy and would be eaten so quickly if I didn’t!
I might add protein powder to them next time as it’s usually the Bf who eats them before or after the gym 🙂
What creations have you made lately?
