Protein snacks have a bad reputation for being hard to swallow and digest. However these protein power balls are breaking the mould. They are delicious and perfect to eat straight after a workout. The recipe is easy to follow and take no longer than 20 minutes to make! Try them yourself.
2 scoops whey protein, chocolate or vanilla, also can be used soy protein for lactose intolerance.
100g almond butter (or any choice of butter)
25g chia seeds
50g flax seeds,can be mix with pumpkin and sunflower seeds
