A friend introduced me to these Protein Peanut Butter Balls a couple of months ago and I am now forever indebted to her. They are so easy and so good! I will eat one right before a workout or before bed and it is the perfect amount. And even better, the kiddos love them. If we run out, I am quickly told we are out and I need to make more. They are simple, taste good, and good for you!
