I can’t stop eating these things!! They’re seriously so delicious. They taste almost exactly like chocolate sugar wafer cookies. OMGSOGOOD.
And the great thing about these protein balls is that there’s some automatic portion control built in, so if you eat the entire batch, like I typically do, you won’t wreck your diet for the day. 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.
