honey oat balls

Keeping with yesterday’s theme of Sunbutter, here is a recipe for honey oat balls!  I used Sunbutter, honey, flax and oats for these protein packed snacks!

They make a great on-the-go breakfast or are great to eat after exercising.  The combination of protein and carbohydrates stimulates insulin to be made, which will bring glucose and amino acids into the muscles for recovery.

Honey Oat Balls

3 cups old fashioned oats (not quick oats!)

1 cup Sunbutter (any nut butter would work!)

1 cup honey

1/2 cup flax meal

1/2 cup rasins
