Healthy Quick Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Balls

Raise your hand if you like peanut butter! I could eat it by the spoonfuls. In honor of National Peanut Butter Lover’s Day on March 1 I decided to make some of my go-to protein filled peanut butter chocolate balls. Perfect for after a workout, if you are in need of a healthy dessert, or if you want to curb sugar cravings. This protein ball recipe is easy to make, super quick, healthy, and most importantly DELICIOUS!

These energy balls are great to meal prep because you can make them and put them in a sealed container and they will last in the fridge for a week or so. Let me know in the comments if you try them out.

Instructions

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and give them a mix. Depending of what protein powder you use you may have to add a little bit of water if the mixture is too dry. Once they are evenly combined, roll them into balls and enjoy! The hardest part will be not eating all of them at once!

Notes

*I use Bob’s Red Mill Organic Extra Thick Rolled Oats but you can use whatever oats you have

*I love Jif’s Natural Low Sodium Peanut Butter but use whatever is your favorite

*OWYN is my protein powder brand of choice but, again, use what you have on hand
