Until recently, I’ve never been much of a breakfast eater. Once in awhile a fruit filled crepe or a few slices of bacon call my name, but it’s not often that I look forward to the first meal of the day (unless I wake up at noon and skip right to lunch, haha!). However, as someone who’s highly interested in the wellness arena, I’ve read time and time again how important a solid morning routine, including breakfast, can be to one’s health.

So, that’s why I’ve created three different protein ball recipes for today’s post. They’re super filling, but small enough that they don’t feel like a meal while you’re eating them. They’re perfect for non-breakfast eaters like me. Because after all, as much as I dislike most breakfast foods, I dislike being hungry even more!

Aside from being both filling and delicious, these protein balls are great just because they are so darn simple to whip up. They also contain Honey Bunches of Oats®, which are heart healthy and packed with 10g of whole grains per serving. What’s not to love about that?

P.S. Here’s a sweet coupon for $1 off of two boxes! 

Here’s how you can make three different variations of these delicious protein balls:

PB&J Protein balls

The PB&J protein balls were my favorite out of all three recipes! They’re a little more difficult to roll into the balls than the other variations due to the fresh strawberries, so that’s not an absolute essential if you’d rather they be a bit more solid. The Honey Bunches of Oats® with Strawberries also already has dried strawberries in it, but I just wanted to add even more of a berry punch! 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups Honey Bunches of Oats® with Strawberries
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 5 strawberries mashed

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly and allow to set in the fridge for 15 minutes
  • Roll mixture into small balls and enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for 1-2 days

Honey vanilla protein Balls

These protein balls were Richard’s favorite out of all three recipes! They’re the most solid of all three, and are probably the easiest if you’re looking to take them on-the-go. They’re also quite a bit crunchier than the other two variations! 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cup Honey Bunches of Oats®  Honey Roasted
  • 1/4 cup craisins
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter or other nut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly and allow to set in the fridge for 15 minutes
  • Roll mixture into small balls and enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for 2-3 days

chocolate almond protein balls

This one’s for all you chocolate lovers!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups Honey Bunches of Oats®  with Almonds
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl thoroughly and allow to set in the fridge for 15 minutes
  • Roll mixture into small balls and enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for 2-3 days
