Yummiest Peanut Butter Protein Balls and a great blog

Before I got pregnant I was workout with a friend of mine named Lisa Harris she is a great trainer that knows her stuff and knows how to make a women look lean and cut but buff all at the same time. 
She is located in Mesa and is a great price, if any of you are looking for a trainer at the beginning of this new year she is the girl for you. If you are in Arizona and would like some more info about her training then you can email her at lisafharris43@gmail.com
Not only does Lisa train,  she and two other darling girls are the bloggers behind
This blog is so great. The blog has all kinds of great tips, everything from Fashion for adults and kids, Beauty, to Weight loss tips, and the list goes on and on. My baby is now a week old and although I can’t start workout out yet I want to change my eating habits asap. 
Check out this post/recipe for the yummiest Peanut Butter Protein Balls. I love them, my kids love them and even the hubby loves them. And even better they are only 102 calories!

Here is what Lisa said:
I keep a bag of protein balls in my freezer at all times. They satisfy my cravings for sweets and are a great on the go breakfast for my girls in the morning. 
 I start by mixing my peanut butter in my Kitchen Aid on medium for 1 minute. Add the protein powder, flax, and oats.
4 cups of peanut butter(any kind will do)
1 cup of vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup ground flax meal
1 1/2 cups quick oats(uncooked)

Once you’ve mixed your base add what you have on hand. 
Suggestions: shredded coconut, dark chocolate chips, raisins, crushed up cereal, almonds, walnuts.
You can also make the balls with just the base by adding another cup of oats. 
Mix everything on low to medium until the sides of the mixing bowl come clean. 
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Form the dough into balls and freeze at least one hour.  Remove balls and store in a ziploc bag in the freezer. Makes 24 to 36 balls depending on size.
Nutrition facts per 1 inch ball:
