Cherry Almond Protein Balls

In case you haven’t noticed, we’re in love with cherries around here, and the dried ones starring in this snack are so delicious—you’ll be tempted to eat them like candy! (Be sure to buy the kind without added sugar.) Cherries are a great source of melatonin, the hormone made by your body that’s responsible for quality sleep, as well as vitamin C and other superfood phytonutrients that support muscle repair. Oh, and the almond butter gives these balls an extra protein kick. Enjoy! 

Ingredients 

  • 1 ½ cups Oats
  • 1 cup Almond Butter, unsalted
  • ½ cup Mama Love Protein
  • ½ cup Dried Cherries, packed
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup

Instructions 

Place all ingredients in a food processor. Blend on high until well mixed. (Or put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a wooden spoon—it’s an arm workout!)

Scoop mixture into golf-ball size portions using a small ice cream scoop. (Or roll into balls with your hands.)

Store in a covered container in the fridge.

Makes about 16 balls; 8 servings.
