Holy Yummy Protein Balls!

Oh boy, I am so excited to share this recipe with you all!! I spent my Friday night in the kitchen testing out protein bars, and this is this best one I have ever tasted! It's more of a Protein Ball, but it is chewy, sweet, yummy, and I felt like I was eating raw cookie dough!! 
I based it off this recipe from The Gracious Pantry but made some changes to it! 

Cinnamon protein balls
2 cups of old fashioned oats
8 vanilla whey protein
3 TBSP all natural peanut butter 
1/2 c Honey
1/2 c applesauce 
1TBSP Cinnamon
2 TBSP Chia seeds
1 smashed banana 


Roast the 2 cups of oats in the oven for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Take then out of the oven and mix into bowl with all other ingredients. Lay flat into a baking pan and bake for about 10 minutes. Take out of oven let cool a little then roll into 12 golf sized balls. Let cool. Enjoy!! Holy yummy! You can add chocolate chips for sure I just didn't have any left!
These come in at about 240 cals 5g fat 32g carbs and 20g protein!


Enjoy!!
