Vegan Maple-Oat Protein Balls

These delectable snacks can give you a plant-based punch of protein whenever you need it, along with some sweetness without using refined sugar. They’re rich in fiber, as well as protein, and can be kept in an airtight container for up to five days in the refrigerator, or up to three months in the freezer.

½ cup Peanut butter, sugar-free

⅓ cup Flaxseeds, ground

1 cup Rolled oats

2 tbs Maple syrup, pure

¼ cup Semi-sweet vegan chocolate chips, mini

1. Combine peanut butter, flaxseed, oats and maple syrup. Stir until well combined. The consistency will be a bit on the dry side. If it’s too dry and the balls won’t stay together add 2 to 3 tablespoons of peanut butter.

2. Stir in the chocolate chips.

3. Using a tablespoon or 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop a spoonful of the mixture and roll into balls. Continue until all mixture has been used. Chill for an hour before serving.
