These little protein balls are a family favorite and are perfect as an on the go snack. If you are like me and need to have something sweet in the afternoon then you will love this collection of healthy and satisfying protein-packed snacks!

Protein Powerballs are one of my favorite snacks to eat. I keep a supply in the fridge or freezer to help me stay on track with my meal plan.

Here are six reasons you should give them a try:

  • They keep you full because of the healthy combination of protein, carbs, and fat.
  • They are compact and can be taken anywhere, even camping!
  • The recipes are simple to make or tweak for your personal taste.
  • They have fewer preservatives than pre-made protein bars and drinks.
  • They will SAVE you $$$$ versus buying pre-made protein bars and drinks.

Plan your way to a healthier YOU!

 Why do we typically “fall off of the wagon” when it comes to our healthy eating? It is because we are not prepared with healthy snacks when our cravings hit. And if we think about it, having a healthy and sweet snack at the ready is like having a Superpower!
