Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls

FoodFood for the Body
June 9, 2015 / By / , , , , , / Post a Comment

Hi! Remember me? :)  I’m blocking out some time in my schedule to share some goodness with you today!

This one’s a crowd favorite. I made it for my bodyattack class a couple of weeks ago for my bday, and I was inspired to post the latest version of this recipe. 

 Over the last couple of years, I’ve posted a couple of versions of this, all starting from my sister in law being these lovelies to a family weekend. This one I think is the best version yet. It’s a mix of peanut butter, almond butter, and chocolatey peanut butter goodness. Like a healthy version of a no bake cookie. Sound good?  

We make these for birthday treats, midday snacks (stashed in the center console of the car!) and for road trip munchies.  They’re an all-around sweet snack.
