Take a look at your average protein ball recipe and you will find a lot of sugar and saturated fat in them. The majority of protein ball or “energy ball” recipes calls for main ingredients of dates (it’s natural but still high in sugar, guys), and/or lots of coconut oil (very high in saturated fat). So, I haven’t ventured far into the protein ball arena because well…I like to eat more than just one teeny tiny ball! Enter J’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Balls. They are amazeballs. Truly. Seriously. Even my kids like them and they don’t like much of anything. I hope you like them too.
Note: The protein powder you use will really affect the taste so I really suggest using BPI’s chocolate cookie. For 20% off this awesome protein powder, or any of BPI’s other products, follow this link and use my code FITFORCEFX at check-out. If you already have another protein powder you really like the taste of you can use that too – just make sure it’s a tasty one. I cannot guarantee amazeballs flavor if using another brand. 😉 Also if you use a different protein powder the macros may differ. xo ~J
