Since I've been pregnant I've been really conscious of my protein intake. I do not eat a lot of meat, and I don't really want to. This is a quick, delicious way to get in a bite of protein (and some other healthy stuff too). Yes, I do realize that I could just eat a spoonful of peanut butter. But adding some fiber and omega-3s is more my style.
No-Bake Peanut Energy Balls
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup peanut butter (remember low fat= more sugar-- go natural!)
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
Whisk together peanut butter, honey, and almond milk. Fold in rolled oats. Roll ~1 1/2 Tbsp of mixture into a ball. Continue with remaining mixture. Place balls onto a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Sprinkle chia seeds onto a large plate. Roll each refrigerated ball into the seeds, distributing them onto each ball evenly. Return to refrigerator and serve chilled.
