Here is a recipe for my Oatmeal Raisin Power Balls. Peanut butter and pecans provide a little protein while oats and raisins provide carbohydrate. Maybe try these for your post-workout snack!
What you will need:
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/4-1/3 cup honey or agave syrup (I combined the 2)
- dash of cinnamon
- 1/4-1/3 cup raisins
- crushed pecans (your preference on how much to add, I added about 1/4 cup)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. The overall texture will still be fairly crumbly. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Form into small balls, a little smaller than a ping pong ball. You have to really press! If you still are having trouble getting them to stick, just add a little more honey. Place back in the refrigerator for ready made little snacks throughout your week!
