  • Because who doesn't love a good ball? Especially one packed with protein and nutrients?
  •  
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large sweet potato, roasted
  • 1 scoop Slap Vanilla Protein
  • ¼ cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 tbs. vanilla sunflower butter ( I tried to make my own and it did not really work out so well...so mine was more like a sunflower flourish/butterish mix I did not add enough oil) (can use butter of choice was trying to mix it up rather than using pb)
  • 1 tbs. ground flax seed meal
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Trader Joe's hemp seeds (to roll the balls in)

 Directions:

  1. Roast the sweet potato in the oven for about 40 minutes. 
  2. Peel skin from the cooked sweet potato.
  3. Add the potato to a mixing bowl. 
  4. Using a fork mash the potato up. 
  5. Add the protein powder, cinnamon,flax, and oats. Mix with fork until combined.
  6. Add the sunflower butter and mix until combined.
  7. Place in fridge for about 20 mins to chill. Take out and spoon into balls. 
  8. Place on plate and put in freezer to harden for about 15 mins. Take out and roll in hemp seeds. ( I did this because am planning on freezing the extras anyways.)
  9. Place in an freezer container and place back in the freezer. ( I keep mine frozen because they are just unfrozen when I get to work and when I want them.)
