Tis the season of children home from school and a never ending trail of hungry children to feed all day long. Instead of endless fruit snacks, candy, and chips try to exchange the processed foods for fresh and natural items that will leave those hungry hungry hippos full and energized for longer.

We whipped up some protein balls during baby Brothers nap time today – entire process took 15 minutes (even with my tiny helper).
They taste like candy and are amazingly tasty!


  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/4 cup of chocolate morsels
  • 1/4 cup of almond butter
  • 1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract

Directions: Mix it up and roll into balls.  Yeh, that’s it, crazy simple! No baking.  I mean CMON people, it doesn’t get much easier than this!


To make this tasty treat even more toddler friendly make the balls into various sizes! We discussed small, medium, and large shapes and placed in order from biggest to smallest and vice versa. We also made a pattern as well! Fun way to add learning into a simple cooking to do!

  1. I am definitely making these this weekend! How do you cook them once you have them on the baking sheet? This sound like they could be soft enough for me to eat while I’m on a soft diet.
