Peanut Butter Protein Balls: A Quick Healthy Snack

Looking for a healthy alternative snack on the go? One of my most favourite low carb snacks is “Protein balls”. Essentially, I describe them as the healthy version of cookie dough… and we all know everyone is “down with the dough”. They’re simple and quick to make and real kick is- they don't even need to be baked! They’re full of protein, healthy, and can give you that afternoon boost you need. 

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 1 hour


1 cup chocolate whey protein powder
1 ½ cups of crunchy natural peanut butter
½  cup rolled oats
2 tbs flax seeds
2 packets splenda
½  cup of chopped up mixed nuts
1 tbs ground coffee

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix as needed. The constancy should be somewhat like cookie dough; depending on the type of protein you use, you may need to adjust the amount of protein or peanut butter.  Roll the protein in to balls (about 2 tbs worth per ball). This makes about 16 balls. You can sprinkle the balls with cinnamon and or flaked coconut for an added delight. For best results, I like let them firm up in the fridge for about an hour.
