3 cups old fashioned 100% OATS [I don't like quick oats, but they will work too.]
1/2 cup BRAN
1/2 cup FLAXSEED
1/2 cup CHOPPED NUTS
1 scoop PROTEIN powder [you could use dry milk powder as a substitute]
1 cup HONEY [I use raw honey from the bees at my parent's house. Any sweetener will do.]
First, mix all your dry ingredients.
Next, add your honey. I like to warm the honey so it is more of a liquid form. It helps mix and combine all the ingredients together.
Then, you will roll them into balls and let them sit on wax paper or parchment paper. As the honey becomes more solid, the balls will hold together tighter. At first, the balls might crumble a little, but give the honey time to thicken. I like to use a mini ice cream scoop. Then, I don't get all sticky and all my balls are the same size. *This recipe will make approx. 40 protein balls. I freeze them and enjoy them as quick morning treat if I'm going to exercise before breakfast...or I love them as my afternoon snack. My family LOVES them too. By freezing them, they last us a little longer...we kind of forget about them. :-)
