Inspired by Katie’s post for Protein Balls, I tweaked the recipe a bit and developed these. They taste a great deal like uncooked cookie dough, are a bit healthier, and the kids liked them. Success!! We had these Saturday afternoon for snack.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
- 1 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 cup skim or soy milk
- 1/2 cup organic, natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup agave nectar (you can use 1/2 cup honey if you do not have this)
- 1 tsp good quality vanilla (I prefer this brand)
- 1 1/2 cups oatmeal
- 2 Tbsp flax seed
- 2 Tbsp wheat germ
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
In a large bowl, combine the milk and protein powder. Mix well. Add the peanut butter, honey, agave, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add oatmeal, flax, wheat germ, and mini chocolate chips. Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. Let set in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes. Serve. Store remaining balls in Ziploc bag in the fridge. Makes approximately 20 balls.
Each Monday, I’ll showcase a family and kid-friendly recipe to share with your family. Please let me know if you try one of my recipes! Enjoy!
