So I came across these amazing protein poppers that are a great running recovery snack over on Kristin Andrus' Instagram account (she posts lots of healthy recipes and some great workouts!) and they are absolutely delicious!
So delicious, in fact, that even though I have never shared a recipe on the site before I felt it my duty to share this one! Because they are just so. good.
Oh, I forgot...they are also good for you!
Here's why you need to make them:
Mix everything together, roll into 1 inch balls, and store in the freezer.
1 C Old Fashioned Oats
1 C Steel Cut Oats
1 C Rice Crispy Cereal
1 C Nut Butter (I use natural peanut butter)
1 C ground flax seed
1/2 C Coconut flakes
2/3 C chocolate chips (optional)
3/4 C honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 TB coconut oil (optional)
Easy and done!
I questioned the rice crispy cereal since that isn't really a great source of healthy carbohydrates but don't leave it out! It gives it such a satisfying crunch!
I have been making these on Saturday mornings and usually one batch will last for the week! But they are easy to double!
Hope you enjoy them as much as I have been!
