Just Another Healthy Snack – Amazaballs Recipe!

Healthy Snack

 

Hi Everyone,

I finally have a new healthy snack recipe for you. I came up with it by a complete accident – my love for semi toasted oats :). This recipe is super easy to make, only has few ingredients and it’s extremely filling. I already ate 4 of them today and I know you will love them as well.

The Ingredients

  • Old Fashioned Oats (  Tipdon’t buy the quick minute oats because they are heavily processed, always get the old fashioned ) – 3-4 handfuls
  • Raw Almond Butter – 8 oz
  • Organic Raising – 2-3 handfuls ( depending on how sweet you want them )
  • Cinnamon – to taste
  • A dash of Almond milk ( Forgot to put it on the picture )
  • Sea Salt
  • Whey Isolate Protein Powder 2-3 scoops

You can also add a bit of raw honey of you like, but I don’t like them to be too sweet.

 

Healthy Snack

 

First Things First

Toast lightly salted with sea salt oats. I placed them into 375 degrees oven, for exactly 18 minutes. Every 4-5 minutes check on them and toss them around so they get a little golden all the way around.

 

The above picture probably doesn’t show the colors very well, but you know what I mean a little golden, but don’t over cook them.

When it’s ready, take it out of the oven and add raw almond butter, cinnamon, protein powder, raisins, and just a dash of almond milk. Mix it all together and roll into ball shape. Place it in the fridge for 1 hour and enjoy!

    Hi:  ..not trying to be a smart_ss…  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Steenbock   I grew up on farm having to bag certifieed seed oats…  32 pounds to a bushel/3  bushels to a bag before 64 lbs bags…Oat groats are high in fat (lipids), and once removed from their protective
    hulls and exposed to air,
    enzymatic (lipase) activity begins to break down the
    fat into free fatty acids, ultimately causing an off-flavour or rancidity. Oats
    begin to show signs of enzymatic rancidity within four days of being dehulled if
    not stabilized. This process is primarily done in food grade plants, not in feed
    grade plants. Groats are not considered raw if they have gone through this
    process; the heat disrupts the germ, and they cannot sprout.

       I think oats are my favorite kind of snack for healthy eating, and your recipe is making me crave, “Amazaballs”!   ..ps-  ..congrats with you-tube  and concerning your face book request…beyond my practice  :-)  
    ..you had me thinking, about you doing a “garden-workout”?  ..hoeing/soil aeration

      ..keep up the health caring good work!  :-)

      Hey, 

      Well, I guess if we don’t eat too many oats we should be OK :).  

      Thank you for the congrats :), I finally figured out how to make a banner, I struggled with it for a whole day.

      What?? I was looking for a snack for tomorrow and I found this about oats… MY BELOVED OATS!!! U don’t know what I’d do without them. they’re my favorite replacement for bread. I bake oats cookies, oats bars, i make oats bowls… ahhh :(

      Anyway, Tatianna, I wanted to share a recipe I’ve just made! It’s a twist on the traditional Salmorejo, which is a cold soup in case you haven’t heard of it :) (similar to Gazpacho, Spanish recipes). Very quick and easy to make! And yummy!! (at least for my taste).

      For 1 serve, you can use 1 tomato, 1/3 cup of beans (any kind: kidney, the normal white ones…) this would be the replacement for the bread ;), 1 stalk of celery, 1/4 of a garlic clove, salt, pepper, olive oil, apple vinegar (if you fancy, it’s ok anyway), and a bit of water for consistency (like 1/4 cup or a bit less, I like mine “creamy”). 
      So you just cut the tomato in a quarter, roughly chop the celery, chop the quarter of a garlic clove as small as you can and put it all together (with the rest of ingredientes) in a blender. And that’s it! 
      Packed with proteins from the beans, so fresh. You can also sprinkle with 1 boiled egg, or eat it aside :)

    Hi, 

    What is your question?

    Hello Tati,

    So that protein powder is the one I should get right?
    I have another question, for this kind of recipes with protein powder or oats, (or nuts in some cases) should we workout before eating them (like a post-workout meal)? Or can I take it as a little “dessert” after dinner?

    I workout in the morning and I usually eat a fruit or egg and veggies before my workout and after my workout is when I find difficult to eat something.

    Sorry for leaving so many questions in all your post but you have no idea how good it feels when someone that knows about fitness actually replies. On the other hand I have read so much but now I am trying to take everything into practice, I have zero experience with several super foods or protein powder but I have to start somewhere I think.

    Thank you and have a nice day.

      Hi Mily :)

      That is a good brand, I like it cause it tastes good. Now I’m not taking any protein powder at all, but if I were to make snacks like these I would definitely go get this one.

      Before your workout it’s best if you have veggies and protein ( eggs are great ). After the workout depending on what results you want, a) if you want to lose weight, than not eating for 1-2 hours is best. b) if you want to gain muscle than it’s best if you eat a piece of fruit and few eggs or chicken breast, or if you like you can have whey protein :), but make sure you have that fruit after the workout cause your muscles need glycogen.

        Thank you,

        I have muscle but I have fat too, haha so I am going to focus on losing body fat first (not eating right after my workout) and then later, when I lose a bit of fat I will focus on gain muscle (protein after my workout)

        :)

          Yes that is a good plan!

  • Kim

    do you have any thoughts about what i could replace the whey protein with? i am sensitive to dairy and i have some hemp protein but it is not very tasty. what about like a nut meal?

    • http://www.lovingfit.com/ Tatianna

      You can definitely do hemp protein, or rice protein.

        thanks! i can’t wait to try them!
