Kids Protein Pops

1 cup walnuts, chopped
2 cups granola
2 bananas, mashed
3 scoops Bluebonnet vanilla whey protein powder
2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips (white/dark)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 1/2 cups ginger cookies, crumbed

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl except for the ginger cookie crumbs. Using a teaspoon, form mixture into balls and coat with cookie crumbs (roll). Place in a small cookie sheet, making sure they're not touching. Set aside while you make the frosting.

Frosting (optional):
1/2 cup full cream Greek yogurt
Enough powdered sugar to make a thick paste 

Whisk yogurt and powdered sugar until they become thick. Dip truffles until fully coated and place in cupcake wrappers on a small cookie sheet. Insert lollipop sticks.

Refrigerate to set.
