Ingredients
  • 1/4cup Honey
  • 2 cups old fashioned oatsYou can also use quick oats
  • 1cup your favorite nut butterFor this particular version, we use Betsy’s Best Cinnamon Chia Seed Almond Butter, but peanut butter works wonderfully as well.
  • 1tsp. vanilla
  • 1scoop protein powder (cookies n’ cream)We love the MyProtein brand powder. There are so many yummy flavors and the quality is great! Keep in mind the flavor you choose because it will impact the flavor of your bites. We used cookies n’ cream this time, but vanilla, chocolate, or similarly flavored powders will also be delicious.
  • 1 tbsp. *powdered flax seednot necessary, but is a great source of dietary fiber and omega-3 fatty acids
