Do you want a power packed Preworkout snack that will fuel you through your entire workout?

Then LJB’s Ultimate Nut-Butter Protein Balls are your answer for a go to snack!

Ingredients:
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup youfresh naturals nut butter (your choice of flavor)
2tsps sweet spreads (your choice of flavor)
2 scoops ETB protein of your choice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup organic non-sweetened dark cocoa chips

Mix all ingredients in a bowl add a little fat free milk or almond milk if needed (because of protein powder) once finished chill for 30-40min then roll into balls and enjoy! Keep refrigerated!

Can be wrapped in Saran Wrap and taken to gym for pre-workout power snack!

They should last quite some time in the fridge!

**Update**
I added chia seeds. I like recipes that are the same but are constantly different. What does that mean?

You can change the ETB protein flavors for a totally new recipe

You can change the Youfresh Naturals nut butter for a different taste cookie dough, cinnamon etc..

You can change the Sweet Spreads flavor for a different healthy coconut butter – cinnamon, mint chocolate etc…

You can even change the Seeds – Chia, Sesame, Poppy etc…

You can swap out the glue too: from honey to agave to fresh organic maple syrup

Wanna go crazy? You can swap the Oatmeal for Quinoa 😳

Make sure you check out the reviews for Sweet Spreads and Youfresh Naturals and (ETB) Eat the Bear Protein here on this site!

First person to make it take me a pic!

Practical application:

I didn’t have any flaxseeds or chia seeds but I wanted to make them ASAP! So; I did!

Get Creative! And feel free to share your combinations, and comments!
