Protein Power Balls
I love making power balls! There’s something so pleasing about them… that and they have SO much potential and they are as easy to make as they are to eat.
Plus, there’s an infinite number of flavor combinations you can try. Once you’ve made a few at home, you’ll start to see how the ratios and flavor pairings work.
These nutrient-dense power balls are a perfect and easy snack. You can pre-make them and store them in your fridge, or pop them into the freezer for a little while for a nice ice cream texture.
