Additional Notes

PROTEIN POWDER: For this recipe you want to use a PLAIN powder, no added sweeteners. Our preference is Pumpkin Seed Protein for the kids (Omega Nutrition OR Jarrow brand). For a more grown up taste we favor hemp protein powder.

Instructions

Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl. Add wet ingredients to the bowl and mix thoroughly until well combined. Use a tablespoon to scoop batter and roll into balls with your hands. You can serve as is or refrigerate before serving. These will also keep in the freezer and can be eaten right from the freezer.
