Blend almonds, oats and protein powder in a food processor until finely ground.

Form mixture into 1 inch balls. Sprinkled crumbled strawberries over the top and place in the fridge until ready to eat.

**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!
