Isn’t everyone looking for that quick and easy snack that’s portable so you can take it on the go with you? I certainly was!

I checked out a few different recipes on Pinterest for various protein balls but many used protein powders with questionable ingredients. Plus, I wanted to make sure it was also nutrient-dense and would provide a good balance of fat and protein with minimal sugar.

So I created my own.

Mostly I created it for my 2-year old son because I was looking for a healthy snack to pack for daycare that was also easy for him to eat. But I also really love peanut butter balls, so it’s a win-win for both of us!
