The recipe only makes 4 protein balls and each one has approximately 75 calories, 3.5g fat, and 3g protein. And they’re actually pretty big despite my photos not making them look that way.
- 1 plain rice cake
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter (I think Nutella would work too)
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp chocolate protein powder (vanilla works too)
- pinch of sea salt
Directions: Crush rice cake with hands and place in a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients listed above and combine well. (I used the back of a spoon to really mush everything together.)
Divide batter into four sections and roll each of them with your hands into a ball. Refrigerate or eat immediately. Enjoy!
