#TryItWithRogers: No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Energy Balls
June 12, 2017
A common problem in most household’s is not having good, healthy food for when you’re busy and on-the-go. There’s no better feeling than being able to satisfy your hunger and supply your body with energy by just opening up the fridge door and grabbing something quick. We trolled through some of our favourite blogger sites and found this recipe by The Healthy Maven. What’s great is that once you get the basics down, you can adapt to use anything your heart desires–a truly versatile recipe!
For this recipe we used Rogers Large Flake Oats.
First, we start with our Large Flake Oats.
And to them we add protein powder (we used plant-based vanilla)…
And chia seeds.
Give that all a stir.
Then add a nut butter of your choice (we did natural almond butter).
Add honey & vanilla.
Give that good stir and then add in your preferred ingredient (we chose dried cranberries).
To blend the mixture together, add small amounts of water at a time until you reach a drippy consistency but can still hold it’s shape.
Roll into balls, using hands.
And place in a container.
Let the balls set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and there you go! How easy is that?
1 1/2 cups Rogers Large Flake Oats
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1/2 cup smooth natural nut butter
3 tbsp. natural honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup dried cranberries (could also use raisins, chocolate chips, etc)
2-4 tbsp. liquid (water, milk, almond milk)
In a large bowl add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds.
Add in nut butter, honey and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
Add in dried cranberries (or preferred add-in). Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly.
Slowly add in liquid 1 tbsp. at a time and combine using hands until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds its shape.
Roll into balls using hands.
Place in a container to set in fridge for 30 minutes. Store in fridge until ready to eat.
