I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to try it/change it up a bit.  Here’s what I came up with.  These are awesome for breakfast, snack, pre workout…Hope y’all like them!

  • 1 cup dry oatmeal
  • 1 scoop vanilla AdvoCare Muscle Gain powder (or chocolate.  I like the vanilla, it’s so versatile.  I just got a new canister in, so expect lots of recipes with this stuff.  It’s so good.)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips- 70% cacoa or higher
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (This time I tried Smucker’s Natural Creamy.  It was in Clean Eating Magazine, so I thought it was worth a shot.  It’s good.)
  • 1/2 cup local honey
  • 1/4 cup flax seed
  • dash of pure maple syrup

Mix together, let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or more.  Shape into 1 inch balls, store in the fridge for up to a week.

Possible substitutions: almond butter, dried fruit, take out the chocolate chips and put a packet of mandarin orange Spark (orange creamsicle, anyone? In this case, I’d take out the peanut butter, double the honey and sub in just a little almond butter)…let me know what you try and how it turned out!  Happy weekend!
