Here is a quick & easy way to make a healthy snack or dessert that you don’t need to feel guilty about eating!  {As long as you don’t eat 5 in one sitting 😉 }  There are lots of recipes floating around the interwebs for Protein Balls.  Most include peanut butter, but I sub in almond butter to be more Paleo friendly!  Below is my adapted, super easy recipe originally found here.

Frozen Protein Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 c almond butter
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 2 ripe bananas

Mix all ingredients together.  Roll into quarter/half dollar size balls.  Freeze in baggies or storage container.

DONE!  See, I told you they were very easy!! 🙂

They’re best frozen in my opinion, but definitely don’t have to be.  They’re great to grab as pre or post workout or as a little dessert!  Enjoy!!

**Just a few tips!  Make sure your almond butter isn’t too runny, or your mixture will be soupy & won’t form into balls.  MaraNatha Almond Butter is a great brand.  Also, make sure you’re using a good protein powder, not one that’s stocked full of sugar & ingredients you can’t pronounce!!  Try any of these – NutriForceVega, or True Athlete Whey Protein.**
