These 5-ingredient cookie dough protein balls are as easy to make as they are delicious and nutritious. Gluten-free and vegan, they’re a perfect healthy snack for everyone!
The warmer the weather gets, the more we’re outside, and the more I’m looking for easy, nutritious, on-the-go snacks for my kids.
Some of my favourite snacks to give (and eat) are energy/protein balls. They’re so easy make, don’t require baking, they’re virtually mess free, and you can pack SO much nutrition into them. What more could a mom want?
I managed to pack a lot into these little protein bites – lentils, coconut flour, and natural peanut butter provide protein and fibre (among many other essential nutrients), which help to keep tummies full and sustain energy levels.
And adding dark chocolate chips, vanilla and maple syrup give them the perfect “cookie dough” flavour.
