Homemade Granola & Protein Balls

I jump at the chance to make little bites of something to take care of my sweet tooth. Trust me its one of the biggest sweet tooths you have ever seen so I have to keep it under control. I don’t know if any of you struggle with this as much as I do. Let me know what you guys do to control yours?

Homemade granola is a delicious snack or breakfast.

I love to put it on top of apples or with yogurt and strawberries

Its hard to say the recipe for this because I don’t measure but here goes nothing.

Around 1/4 cup brown sugar

1/8 cup molasses

1/8 cup honey

1 Tbsp butter

Heat this on the stove top just long enough until it all melts together.

This next part is your choice, you can put anything you would like in your granola; oats, chia seeds, any kind of nuts, raisins or sunflower seeds. The combinations go on and on. I only did oats and chia seeds because I like a plain granola.

Start with around 3-4 cups of granola and add the brown sugar mixture. Add more oats if need be. Cook this on a sheet pan for 20 minutes at 325. Let this cool and then break it apart. Don’t keep it in the oven longer if it doesn’t feel hard yet because it will burn pretty quickly. Trust me I am a pro at burning things.

Protein Balls

Another one that is hard to give you the recipe because I just add the ingredients until its the right consistency.

2 cups peanut butter

1 cup oats

3 Tbsp chia seeds

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

1/4 cup honey

Mix this all together and make small balls. Place on a non stick pan and freeze for a few hours. Then I put them all in a zip lock bag and keep them in the freezer.

Tip for any breast feeding momma’s I eat these to keep up my breast milk supply. I also add some brewers yeast to them which also boosts your milk supply.

Happy Cooking!
