Want a healthy way to get your peanut-butter/chocolate fix without caving in to a Reese’s? These Chocolate Nut-Butter Protein Balls are a super-easy, high-protein snack that can satisfy your chocolate cravings in a pinch.
I adapted this recipe from Jessica at Desserts with Benefits recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls. I made a few alterations to the recipe (I was out of a few things). Next time I make these I want to make a lower sugar version using stevia or a mix of stevia and honey or agave. In spite of the substitutions I made to the recipe, these still turned out delicious! Very yummy…very close to a dessert but still healthy.
Here are the subs I made:
- I used chocolate SunWarrior brown rice protein powder instead of whey protein powder
- I used creamy almond butter instead of peanut butter
- I used honey and added a dash of salt and a little bit of vanilla
