It’s September. For me, that means it’s just like every other month. I don’t have kids and I don’t teach, so life goes on as usual.
For others of you though…September is a time to reinstitute a routine. You wake up early, workout (or try to), get the kids up and fed and head to work/school.
You had better hoped to regain your strength over the summer because the fall requires energy…and lots of it!
My favorite time to create recipes is usually during this time of year. Everything is so pumpkin-y and maple-y and spice-y. It’s the precursor to Christmas, which is just heavenly in itself. (minus maybe the cold and snow!)
I made these oat balls a few weeks ago and in true me fashion, they were devoured within less than two days.
- 1 packet maple/brown sugar instant oatmeal
- 1/2 crunchy peanut butter
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1 handful of chocolate chips
- dash of non-dairy milk to cut the dryness
You simply mix in a bowl until desired thick consistency and roll into balls!
It’ll be hard not to lick your hands afterwards! 😉
These balls are awesome for storage up to 1 week frozen and 3 days in the fridge. It makes meal prepping that much easier for healthy snacks! 🙂
Peace, love and easy balls!
