It’s comforting to know I’m getting vitamins, minerals, lots of protein and all of the other goodies inside my body at the start of the day. Sometimes when you’re craving treats (or honestly want to chew something) its nice to have other healthy options too. So the last time I got together with Veggie Lisa, she made me these amazing Lemon-Chia Protein Power Balls. They are so yummy, but they’re also really good for you too! So if you’re looking for a healthy alternative to your favorite lemon treats, look no further…

Lemon-Chia Protein Power Balls

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 3 cups vanilla flavored protein powder
  • 1 TBSP Truvia
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 4 TBSP lemon juice
  • 6 TBSP water

INSTRUCTIONS:

Combine oats, chia seeds, protein powder, Truvia and lemon zest in bowl. Add in lemon juice and water. Form into balls (note: all protein powders have different dryness levels, so you might need to adjust water measurement). Roll in unsweetened coconut shreds and place in freezer for 30 minutes. Remove from freezer and store in airtight container in fridge. Will last for 5 days.
