Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Bites
A classic combo turned into one powerful snack! These peanut butter and jelly protein balls are delicious, kid friendly and will keep you full for hours!
Servings: 27 balls
- 1 cup almonds
- 3/4 cup rolled oats*
- 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp protein powder**
- 3/4 cup freeze dried strawberries***
- Crumbled freeze dried strawberries, for the top
Blend almonds, oats and protein powder in a food processor until finely ground.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl and add peanut butter, maple syrup and dried strawberries. Use a large spoon to stir until fully combined.
Form mixture into 1 inch balls. Sprinkled crumbled strawberries over the top and place in the fridge until ready to eat.
*If you need a gluten free option, replace gluten free oats for the regular rolled oats.
**I used a strawberry protein powder from Nuzest for this recipe. I love this brand because it's plant based and they have so many different flavors!
***You can also use dried strawberries/fruit for this recipe too. Since those were hard for me to find I bought freeze dried strawberries at Trader Joe's. Feel free to mix up the fruit to make your favorite pb&j combo!
