Chia Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Chia Peanut Butter Protein Balls

I have been seeing countless variations of protein balls on Instagram – with matcha, chia, spirulina, maca… And you know me. I had to try them myself! So I made a pretty basic version for the start, with chia seeds and peanut butter.

These balls are the perfect after-gym snack or guilt-free dessert as they contain only healthy ingredients and no sugar! I used unsweetened organic pumpkin seed protein powder, which adds a slightly nutty & very yummy taste to them.

You can store these little snacks perfectly in the freezer and take a few out in the mornings to take them to work or the gym, so don’t be afraid to make a big batch of them! They won’t last too long anyways. 😉
