COOKIE DOUGH PROTEIN BALLS
I am a sucker for all things chocolate chunk so when I discovered bags of Enjoy Life chocolate chunks were on sale at my local grocery store, it was game on!
Balls are something I am a bit of an aficionado of. I’ve been ball makin’ for years! These Hemp Seed Energy Balls and these Chocolate Chia Power Balls are among my favorites here at the Honour System.
But these Balls are creeping there way up the ladder as my new golden child. The perfect cookie dough texture is life!
The best thing about no bake snacks like these is that they are so quick to whip up.
Basically stir, roll, chill and eat.
You could easily sub out the chunks for chocolate chips if you prefer. They would taste equally as good. Even a few chopped nuts like walnuts or pecans would be super good too.
Use whatever you have or whatever is on sale. I always creep the sale flyers to plot my grocery store trips.
I generally use a whey protein powder as I find it gives you the best ‘cookie dough’ like texture but there are some vegan products that work too. Arbonne has a good one if you can get your hands on it.
Forget licking the beaters for cookie dough and whip up these cookie dough energy balls!
