Vanilla Almond Butter Protein Balls + A Terrific Tuesday
Good morning! I have a recipe to share with you along with some more weekend pics and a workout. Last night I came home from work and felt inspired to make a quick grab and go snack. I eyeballed a lot of this recipe so these are very rough measurements!
- 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
- 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp rolled oats
- Roughly 1 cup almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp coconut flakes
- Water - as needed for consistency
- Mix everything together besides water
- Add in water until mixture can easily be rolled into balls without falling apart
This is a super easy snack to make to have on hand and perfect for before or after a workout. I ate one after my early morning workout this morning. I tried a new gym only a couple blocks away from our new apartment. I wasn't feeling very creative in making up my own workout so I did this workout from one of my favorite bloggers, Jen at peanutbutterrunner.com. I switched the chest flies to pushups and added in 45 seconds of a cardio exercise after each round (burpees, skaters and jumping jacks.)
When I can get myself out of bed real early, I like to workout before hopping on the train to work because it gives me the freedom to come home and relax after work.
Before I go I wanted to share a couple more photos from last weekend. On Sunday we had brunch at Toast and it was delicious! I ordered the smoked salmon egg toasts. Such a perfect brunch meal. Michael ordered banana french toast and an egg sandwich. His french toast was definitely the best.
