Protein Peanut Butter Energy Balls for a healthy and delicious snack
I’ve been excited to share this recipe for these protein peanut butter energy balls with you because they’re healthy, easy, and delicious! They’re so simple that I always have all of the ingredients in my kitchen already.
They’re perfect for right before a workout or after, afternoon snacking, or eating as a late-night snack.
These protein peanut butter energy balls contain peanut butter, oats, protein powder chia seeds and maple syrup for a healthy combination of protein, fats and carbs.
I used the Nutree Life Pumpkin Seed protein powder. I love this one as it is only made with 100% pumpkin seeds and it’s organic.
Pumpkin seeds are not only a great source of protein, they are also rich in phosphorus, magnesium and manganese and are also a good source of other minerals including zinc, iron and copper.
