After working out, I get extremely hungry and this is my favorite protein-filled, quick snack that can be prepared beforehand. I like this recipe because it’s SO simple, requires little prep time, no cooking time and you can add in sweets (like chocolate chips) or salty (almonds, nuts, etc). In addition to protein, it has flaxseed which has shown evidence of reducing heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Flaxseed also comes as ‘ground flaxseed‘ if you prefer it less seedy. I usually double or triple the recipe because we go through them so fast!
Mix then chill
Roll and enjoy!

Can’t wait to try these! Do you have a favorite flaxseed brand or size? Do your children lIke them? I might have to add these to our school lunch rotation.
I get the whole flaxseeds which are like the size of sesame seeds at just any grocery store. The kids do like them! I like this recipe because you can add a variety of items depending on preferences.
What is the serving size on these? Before I accidentally eat about 5 at a time.
Ha ha! Depending on what you add in (chocolate chips, nuts, etc) 1 will be approximately 130 calories, 6 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein.
