These peanut butter bombs are crammed full of protein in a single bite- perfect to pop in your mouth before or after a tough workout. Personally, I prefer these when I get home from work, running on empty, and need a pick me up before heading to the gym. I also keep a few in my office to eat on days when I don’t have much time for lunch. I was inspired by a similar recipe created by a runner recently featured in Women’s Health Magazine. Below is my own version, but you could tweak it to suite your taste.
1 cup peanut butter (or sub in or combine any nut butters you like )
1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup sliced almonds (optional)
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup raisins (dried dates/apricots work great too)
dash of cinnamon
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
Directions: On the stove top, melt peanut butter and honey on medium heat until runny. Next, add in oats, sliced almonds, dried fruit, cinnamon, and protein powder. Stir mixture together until well combined. Let mixture cool in the fridge for about 5 to 10 minutes. Then, roll into bite-sized balls and sprinkle with a dash more cinnamon. Store in a cool, dry place or in the fridge.
