Grab a mixing bowl or a food processor (this is my tool of choice) and you can easily make these protein balls!
I've made so many variations which is why this recipe is flexible!
First off, you need a "sticky" substance like a nut butter or honey. If you choose a nut butter, add a cup (or double it if you're wanting to make a super large batch) to your bowl or food processor. Add in some nuts, oats (or flax seed), cocoa (two tablespoons), coconut oil (a tablespoon or two), and a protein powder of your choice or collagen for some extra protein (optional). Blend away or mix by hand.
Then you can add in things like raisins, chocolate chips, chia seeds, cinnamon powder, and coconut flakes.
Once everything is blended together, take a cookie dough scoop or a larger spoon and roll each spoonful into balls. The consistency should be sticky and easy to mold into balls (like cookie dough).
If it's not the right consistency, just add more nut butter!
*** To save time, I put them directly into a glass container and place them in the fridge. BUT you can always line a cookie sheet with wax paper and place them in your refrigerator for 15-20 minutes before placing them in a container.
