Peanut Butter and Jam Balls
These make me think about being a kid in Canada. I pretty much lived off of Peanut Butter and Jam sandwiches!
1 cup of your favourite crunchy peanut butter (if you've got a Bin Inn nearby you can even make your own!).
40g of wholegrain oats (or, if you have some handy, I just used a packet of Blue Frog Breakfast porridge).
1 scoop of your favourite naturally sweetened vanilla protein powder. I always use Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein *
a pinch of sea salt (if your peanut butter is unsalted)
1/4 cup of your favourite jam ( I used the diabetic jam from Bin Inn because it's low carb and doesn't have anything too strange in it!).
In a large bowl mix the first 4 ingredients until well combined. It should be a play-doh consistency, if not, add more oats or protein powder until it's easily shapable.
Roll into 8 large golf ball sized balls.
Placing each ball in your hand, use your thumb to press into the ball and form a deep cavity.
Add a small amount of jam to the cavity and very very carefully seal the ball around the jam. This can be a bit tricky but I find if you make the indent deep enough it's much more easily done. Keep at it!
Roll each ball into desiccated coconut or additional oatmeal. and place into the fridge or freezer to set.
