These are hands down the best protein ball you'll ever make. Well at least I think so... 😉!
See for yourself and make a batch. But don't say I didn't warn you.
It took me about 4 years to perfect my recipe. At least to where I can produce the same protein ball every single time.
In the beginning they were dry and slightly chalky. They got sticky and wet at room temperature because I used coconut oil.
Over time, I've mastered making them similar to cookie dough.
They hold up at room temperature and they're better frozen where they can also last you weeks.
One quick note before I share the recipe...
Here's one last secret...
Microwave two for just 10-15 seconds and OMG it's like a warm brownie bite. Tell me another protein ball that is so versatile!
In our house though, we don't call them protein balls... that's too boring.
They're STRONG BALLS!
Strong balls fuel you, satisfy you, and keep you on track with nutrition.
