Homemade Protein Balls

If you are a fan of protein bars but don’t want the bars loaded with sugar and ingredients, you can create your own. Instead of bars, it is easier to combine the ingredients and make oat balls. You can grab one or two for a snack when heading out the door, pack it for lunch, or enjoy it at home. Protein balls come in different varieties with tons of recipes, but the basic recipe uses oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter, and ingredients like seeds.

Oatmeal with Toppings

If you have time to prepare a bowl of oatmeal, this can be a hearty and filling snack, that also provides you with lots of fiber and protein. A single serving of oats is typically around 100 calories, so this is a light snack, even with your toppings. You can add anything you like to it, including banana and peanut butter, almond butter, chocolate chips or cacao nibs, chia seeds, granola, and so much more. There are many possibilities.
