A simple protein ball recipe that uses cinnamon protein. If you don’t have cinnamon protein simply add some Ceylon cinnamon into your mix. These are a quick, high protein snack.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 2 scoops cinnamon whey (I used this one - you could use a vanilla and add extra 1/2 tsp of ceylon cinnamon)

  • 1/2 cup melted almond butter

  • 1/4 cup natural honey (can be melted too if needed)

  • 1/2 cup light shredded coconut (look for one with reduced fat and lower cals)

  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

  • 1/2 tsp ginger

  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon

  • 1-2 tbsp water (if needed)

 

Method

  1. Place almond butter and honey into a mixing bowl, microwave for approx 30-60 secs until they are a thinner consistency

  2. Add all other ingredients into bowl and mix together well

  3. If the mixture is still slightly dry either add some extra honey (will change macros) or 1-2 tbsp of water

  4. Place the bowl with the mixture in the fridge for 10-15 mins to cool down

  5. Remove bowl from the fridge, line a baking tray with baking paper

  6. Roll mixture into small balls (should make 20)

  7. Place tray in the fridge for 20 mins until they’re ready to serve

  8. Store in the fridge or freezer!
