Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, friends! Boy, do I have a delicious, protein-packed treat for you! I hope you’re ready for a new go-to recipe! 🙂

I love a good protein ball, but, man, sometimes I have zero control around them. I often make a big batch on Sundays and they usually last me all week, but there are definitely times that they only make it until Tuesday or Wednesday. They’re so delicious, I just can’t stay away!

Last week, I had a major craving for cookie dough (heyyy, PMS), and I knew if I made a big ol’ batch of protein balls for the week, I’d probably eat them all in like 24 hours. Yup. It happens to the best of us. Long story short, I whipped up a small batch of Cookie Dough Protein Balls for some added portion control and, whoa, they hit the spot. I hope you guys enjoy these babies as much as I do! 🙂



Directions: Combine ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Batter will likely seem dry at first, but just keep mixing. Roll batter into 4 balls. Enjoy immediately or store in the refrigerator.

  1. I’m definitely going to be making these! I’m really trying to hone down on my sugar cravings in the evenings and I’m sure these will help so much! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  2. I just made these, but used the macadamia nut cookie coconut butter (because that was what I had) and they turned out great! Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. I love these quick recipes! I tried the pumpkin protein balls last week and those were so good and the perfect post workout treat! Can’t wait to try this one!

  4. Yum! Can’t believe I missed these back in November! I skipped the sugar but used Justin’s vanilla almond butter. ❤

  5. hi Tina,

    Stupid question 🙂 What do you mean by “Macros: P 6 C 10 F 8”?

    Can’t wait to try the recipe. Thanks!

    1. That’s the macronutrient breakdown of protein, carbs, and fat. Some people like to track these numbers – similar to tracking calorie!
