AKA “Power Ranger Balls”
Delicious and filling two-bite snacks. There’s oats, almond butter, dark chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and more. Easy to make, no baking! We put so much candy in they’re probably bad for you, but at least you’ll stay full until lunch.

Adapted from Rosanna Pansino’s original recipe:
Makes 20-24 power protein snacks.
1 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp protein powder (unflavored, unsweetened. Basic unsweetened vanilla flavor will work)
2 tbsp flaxseed meal (ground flax). Make sure to refrigerate after opening!
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup unsalted, unsweetened almond butter
3 tbsp finely chopped dates (3 whole dates, remove seeds, chop)
2.5 tbsp honey
First, measure dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir evenly.
Second, measure sticky ingredients into the bowl. Stir and smush together until evenly combined.
Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Roll mixture into balls. Add more almond butter and honey if needed.
Refrigerate in air-tight containers. Lasts one week in the refrigerator.
