Protein Balls



I have to share this Low-Carb/High Protein friendly snack I'm obsessed with!

-1 cup Natural Peanut Butter (or the real stuff if you don't mind)
-3 scoops of Whey Protein Powder (any flavor, I like Vanilla)
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-Artificial sweetener to taste( I like Splenda-1 & 1/2c sugar equivalent)

Optional Coatings:
-Half a bag of Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips
-Coconut
-Cocoa Powder
-Nuts of choice

Mix all ingredients at once in a large bowl. Once firm roll into 1 inch balls. Makes about 16. Chill in the freezer for at least 1 hour. Ready to eat. Store in Fridge.

I don't use a coating in order to keep them healthy. But once firm you can roll them in nuts, coconut, powdered sugar, cocoa, or dip in melted chocolate. Absolutely delish!!

**Each ball contains approx 10g protein and 3 carbs.
