DARK CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BALLS

These have been fun experiments this summer! We have tried these with a scoop of vanilla protein powder, a scoop of chocolate protein powder, a scoop of regular protein powder, or no protein powder at all. No matter how you decide to scoop or not to scoop, they are tasty and satisfying as part of your on-the-go breakfast, snack, or post-meal sweet. I included the nutritional facts here, as moderation is key, 1-2 per serving. ​
