Dark Chocolate Blueberry Oat Protein Balls

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Oat Protein Balls

On those crazy, hectic days when you're feeling drained and don't have the energy or time to make a healthy snack, don't settle for the vending machine. Instead, whip up a batch of these delicious dark chocolate blueberry oat protein balls for an easy pick-me-up that will keep you feeling satisfied for hours.

I suggest making a batch or two and storing them in the freezer. When you're on the run, grab a couple, and the protein balls will defrost as you run your errands. Or pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds for a warm browny-like treat.

The recipe calls for no sweetener, but if you’re sweet tooth calls for it, add 1-2 teaspoons of stevia or maple syrup to taste.

They'll keep well in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
