Ginger Cookie Dough Power-Balls
This is an excellent pre or post workout snack - the higher carbs will give your body energy pre-workout and as a post-workout, will allow your muscles to absorb and use the protein! Plus, ginger is great for recovery and molasses is packed full of iron, calcium and potassium (also great for recovery or to prevent muscle cramps)!
1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Roll Oats
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
1 TBSP Molasses
1/4 TSP Ginger
1/2 TSP Cinnamon
1-2 TSP Stevia (Or Splenda Brown Sugar), depending how sweet you prefer them
*Optional - a few dashes of ground gloves
1 TBSP Water (more or less depending on the size of protein scoop)
- Mix all ingredients together, except for water
- Slowly add a few drops of water, continue mixing and adding drops of water until mixture is sticky and binds together.
- You want to use the least amount of water possible that still allows ingredients to bind together.
- Roll into balls and refrigerate!
(I find they stay best on waxed paper, lightly coated with non-stick spray)
*Optional, roll them in Chia seeds - best for pre-workout*
