Current Knitting Projects and Oatmeal Protein Ball Recipe

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. I have been working on knitting a couple of projects lately, the blue infinity scarf and the front piece of the sweater. They are both coming along well,  but I need to buy another skein of the blue yarn this week to finish up the scarf. I have been making some progress with the sweater piece, it is getting longer day by day I can't wait to start the neckline.  For my next project, I am thinking of knitting some socks with fingering yarn, so this week I will stop by Michael's to pick up both the yarn for the scarf and some new yarn for the socks.

I tried out a new recipe today that would make a great healthy snack called "Oatmeal protein energy balls" from the Cityline website. I really like them they taste amazing. I am supposed to only eat two as a snack as part of the weight loss challenge, but I feel satisfied after eating only two.

Protein balls recipe:  from Cityline 

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I bought Nestle Boost)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup smooth, natural peanut butter
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp water (I added 4 tablespoons to help the ingredients stick together

  • Mix oats, protein powder, cinnamon and flax to large bowl.
  • combine peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract (Will be sticky and crumbly) 
  • add in liquids, use your hands to combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape.
  • Roll into balls using hands.
  • Place in a container to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Store in fridge until ready to eat.


I tried them and I loved them!
