Peanut Butter Protein Balls
Who isn’t in need of something quick, healthy, balanced and high in protein that is easy to make and that the whole family will eat—even our picky kids! Like our tasty Peanut Butter Protein Bars, we have created Peanut Butter Protein Balls that are slightly different but equally as delicious.
These gluten, dairy & soy free protein balls are a fantastic to eat pre or post workout, as well as for breakfast or any snack throughout the day. Each ball is low in carbohydrates and high in protein. You can also increase the amount of protein by adding an additional scoop of protein powder and decrease the amount of sugar by purchasing peanut butter with zero sugar. It’s that easy! As for storage, all you need to do is keep them covered and refrigerated (and that’s so the chocolate doesn’t melt). Enjoy!!

1/3 Cup Honey (Local and raw preferred)
