Mega Protein Snacks

makes about 2 dozen

I adapted this recipe from another one I found here. They are simple to make and so convenient.  I store mine in the freezer and they are ready to go anytime! Despite how they look, I know what you were thinking... they taste great and are loaded with protein!

1 c. oat flour (whole oats blended in a food processor or blender)
2/3 c. protein powder (we use a hemp blend found at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods)
2/3 c. ground flaxseed (grind them in a coffee grinder or food processor. don't buy pre-ground, it looses        its nutritional benefits.)
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. almond butter (or peanut butter, or a combo.  fyi: if you heat it just a little, it makes mixing much easier)
1/2 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. chocolate chips

Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper.

Toss all ingredients into a large bowl, and mix your heart out.

Wet hands and scoop a large tablespoon heap into your hands.  Roll into a ball and place on cookie sheet. When all the batter is rolled up, place cookie sheet into the freezer and chill for at least 30 minutes.

When the snacks are frozen you can transfer them to a freezer bag for east access.
