Of course, adding strawberries to a fresh salad or mixing into a parfait are easy and tasty recipes, but I wanted to do something a bit different and kid friendly. Because we do not eat meat, it is important that I make sure me and my baby get ample protein! And I always like to have things that are ready to just grab if we are on the go. So these Strawberry Power Ball are great! They contain rolled oats, chia seeds and raw almond butter to give you that extra protein. The binding agent is raisins. Though, if you want to splurge, you can always use medjool dates.
My intentions were to have these be a raw snack, but they did not hold up after I ran all the ingredients through the food processor so just popped them in the oven instead. Penelope and I just finished a few for our midday snack and they were a complete success!
