The perfect bite sized snack or treat for when you just need a little something!
In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients. You want the mixture to be able to form balls. If it seems too wet, add a few more oats. If it's too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time until the consistency works.
Using a mini (about 1-inch) scoop, form mixture into balls (about 1 tablespoon per ball). Store in an air tight container in the fridge for about a week, or freeze for up to three months.
The vanilla protein powder adds some nice flavor and a bit of sweetness. Chocolate protein powder would be really good too.
If you have a nut allergy, try them with sunflower butter. It has the same runny consistency as natural peanut butter so I think it would work great, although I have not tried it.
Your traditional jarred peanut butters with added ingredients may or may not work, I have not tried it, but may be too thick and sticky for these.
