One of my favorite holiday indulgences is egg nog. Unfortunately, it is very high in fat AND sugar, making it a once in a blue moon treat for me. However, these healthy egg nog protein balls are right up my alley as a healthy snack for the holiday season. Enjoy!
½ cup cashew butter
2 scoops egg nog protein powder
1 tsp vanilla extra
½ cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup cocoa powder
¼ cup ground flaxseed
¼ cup almond milk
*Optional: Add in some chocolate chips. This is if you want to make chocolate-chocolate chip cookies
-Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Mix until it forms a thick, grainy, cookie-dough like batter, not too smooth or watery.
-Set out a piece of wax paper and scoop out a spoon-sized piece of cookie-dough. Roll into a ball and place on the wax paper.
-Place into the fridge or freezer (freezer if you want in about 20 minutes, fridge if you want to wait an hour)
-Eat and enjoy
