Easy Crisp Rice Protein Balls

We've been making variations of protein balls in my house for about 10 years. Some have been complicated and some have been easy. This one is super easy. 

It's a variation of my Ultimate Protein Ball Recipe (be sure to click back if you need to review more specific directions or get additional ideas to make different versions):

EASY Crisp Rice Protein Balls

2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries 
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
1/4 cup chia/hemp seeds 
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup

Mix together all ingredients. I did a quick stir of the dry ingredients first before I added the wet ingredients. Then I used a stand mixer to make the mixing process easier. Once everything is combined, roll them into bite sized balls. Refrigerate until use. Makes approximately 30 bite size balls.

Note: I usually bring the mixing bowl, a clean hand towel and the dish I'm going to store them into the living room. I put on a movie and start rolling them into balls. It takes about 30 minutes and I find it relaxing and fun to watch a movie (especially Hallmark!) while I do this.

i used to have an eating disorder

i used to have an eating disorder. that's not easy for me to say. because most people don't know. and i thought most people never would. it's not that i'm embarrassed or ashamed. because i'm not. but i know how some people are. i know that once they know the truth, they'll look at me different. they'll watch my steps and wonder if i'm slipping. they'll start to find ways to assume it's still me. because some who do that to me now. but it's not me anymore. and it hasn't been me for awhile. but just because i say it's not me, doesn't mean some people forget. because some people don't. and some people never will. and it's hard when they remind me. it's hard when they won't believe me. because i've tried very hard to overcome my past. so i've told very few and trusted very little.  even now i hesitate to share the truth. i hesitate for people to know. because i'd

from bullied to bold - teaching my boys to stand up for those who can't stand up for themselves

i was bullied in high school. not the big time stuff you hear about in the news but enough that it made me never forget it. and enough that i knew i would never stand for it again.  in my life or in the life of anyone i know. i was a senior in high school. taking an easy class the last semester just to get an easy grade. he was a senior too. a celebrated football player. someone i had known since middle school.  someone i thought was my friend. i don't know why he did it. i think maybe he did it to be cool. or to prove his power. or just because he could. but one day-out of the blue-i became his target. he made fun of the way i looked. he made fun of what i wore. he made fun of what i said. everyone around us heard it. everyone smiled or laughed.  and everyone - including myself - let it go on. everyday. until the end of the year. i don't remember anyone trying to defend me. i don't remember anyone trying to change the subject. i do
