I used to live off packaged protein balls a couple of years ago but most are full of crappy ingredients including sucralose. I try to avoid protein bars if I can and opt to make my own.
I always make a batch of protein balls on Sundays to have a quick snack before a workout or afternoon snack. Don’t omit the sea salt. That’s what gives it the cookie dough flavour!
2 scoops plant based vanilla protein powder (I like Garden of Life brand or Vega sport)
2 tbs smooth peanut butter
1 tbs organic honey
1 tbs hemp hearts
2 tbs cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips
1 tbs coconut flakes
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and add a small amount of hot water. Mix until soft dough forms and roll into balls. Makes approx. 6 servings.
