What’s a girl to do on a rainy day- bake like there’s no tomorrow! (and apparently there might not be with this whole end of the world thing happening tomorrow??)

I saw a recipe for chocolate chip protein balls on @runningwithspoons so want to give Amanda a shout-out for these. I made a few tweaks and added a splash of milk because they were just NOT sticking together! Enjoy and let me know how you like your protein POPPERS!

Choco Chip Protein Poppers

¼ cup almonds

2 TB sunflower seeds

10 dates, pitted

¼ cup oats

2 scoops vanilla protein powder

1 TB coconut flakes

2 TB chocolate chips

1 TB fat-free milk

Chop almonds and sunflower seeds in blender or food processor until consistency is ground up.  Add dates and blend again. Add oats, protein powder, and coconut flakes, blend until mixture is crumbly.

Transfer to bowl, add in chocolate chips and milk. Form into 2” balls, should make about 10. POP into mouth pre or post workout!

What’s your favorite pr-workout snack? What do you nosh on afterwards?? Let me know!
