We have had a huge jar of cashew butter sitting in the fridge for the longest time now and im not really sure why! I forgot there for a little while how yummy and slightly sweet cashew butter is. I have been wanting to make some protein balls for a while now to have before or after workouts or as a quick snack at work. So i decided why not make some with cashew butter? Seriously, so good. I even have it for dessert most nights because it tastes like a sweet and salty cookie!
Here is what you will need:
- 5 Tbsp. of Cashew butter (I used Sprouts brand, salted)
- 1.5 tbsp. of milled flaxseed
- .5 scoop of protein powder
- .3 cup of steel cut oats
- .5tbsp of Manuka honey (any honey will do, but manuka honey has really great health benefits)
Add a couple tablsepoons of water or unsweetened almond milk until reached desired consistency. Makes about 10 balls.
Okay, I am totally aware of the fact that these look like turd droppings but I promise they make up for it in taste!
