These almond butter protein balls come together in just 15 minutes with NO baking or fancy kitchen tools required. They're a tasty snack with a healthy balance of carbs, fats, and proteins to keep you energized and fueled throughout the day!
1. Mix all ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, oats, maple syrup, protein powder, dried fruit, and vanilla extract. Start mixing everything together with a spoon, and then use your hands to finish kneading the mixture together until it starts to clump. There should be no dry streaks remaining when you're done. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if needed to help everything stick together.
2. Roll into balls: Scoop the mixture into 1 ounce portions (approx. 1 packed tablespoon each) and roll each portion into a ball between your palms. Store protein balls in an airtight container or zip-top bag in the refrigerator.
