Oatmeal Raisin Protein Balls

Oatmeal Raisin Balls-2Last Tuesday was my birthday, and I maaaaay have over-indulged in sugar and white flour.  #noregrets.  However, later that night, I was fantasizing about roasted broccoli.  That’s when you know your good eating habits have really become a major part of your life!

So when Custodian Appreciation Day rolled around, I wanted to bring something special to work, but I also didn’t want to hop on the sugar merry-go-round again.  In place of a delicious cookie, I made these delicious protein balls!  They are inspired by my favorite cookie of all time- Oatmeal Raisin.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

An easy, no-sugar, no-bake treat!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 2 servings sugar free plain protein powder- I use Jarrow’s
  • 2 T. honey
  • pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Soak raisins in 2 cups of hot water for 5-10 minutes to plump them up.
  2. Drain the water and pulse the raisins in a food processor until they become a thick paste, about a minute.
  3. Scoop the raisin paste into a bowl with the remaining ingredients and incorporate fully with your hands. If the balls do not stick together enough, add a teaspoon of warm water at a time until they come together. This step was not necessary for me, but your mileage may vary!
  4. Divide the mixture evenly and roll into balls. Place on parchment paper in the freezer for a few minutes if desired. Serve and enjoy!
