Holly Did I ever have a craving for oatmeal cookies this morning so when a craving calls whip them up!! These are great mmmm and there is Protein Powder in them. I don’t know what it is but when there is protein powder in things it makes it easier justify to eat it as a meal lol. So for my snack today I whipped up a batch of these bad boys!! With all my knowledge of balls now (get your mind outta the gutter) I was meaning from DAMY Health and all her delish recipes for no bake balls and cookies. I can kind of just whip up anything now and hope that it tastes good!! This one was a success that for sure.
No –Bake Oatmeal Raisin Protein Balls
Makes 18 Balls
2 scoops Natural Protein Powder ( Vanilla would work fine too)
1 cup pecans
1 cup Raisins
1 cup oatmeal
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp Salt
3 Tbsp Water ( slowly add this at the end just to get mixture to stick together good, you might not need all this. Depends on how moist your raisins are.)
Place all your ingredients into Food processor ( I use a Ninja Blender) and mix and mix you might have to stop a couple times to scrape down the sides. Slowly add your water and BAM your done its that’s easy. Place in the fridge for about 20 minutes before shaping into balls or bars which ever you prefer. I prefer balls its much faster with my little scoop and less messy. This will firm up the mixture making it easy to handle. ha-ha
I would eat 2 of these for a snack.
Question: When you have cravings do you just eat it or do you try and avoid it and do something else?
I tend to just go and make or get what I’m craving otherwise I just eat everything else possible to try and avoid that craving in the first place, overall eating wayyyyyy more food then I would have if I would have just ate what I was craving!!
Alright thats it for today Bump yah later Folks!
