I’m finally sharing a new recipe on the blog today, Snickerdoodle Protein Balls. They make the perfect healthy treat and snack to enjoy on-the-go!
The last few months have been crazy! Between moving, the holidays, traveling to Hawaii to visit my sister and new baby nephew, and redecorating my new place, I haven’t been had time to test new recipes and take food photos. Now that my apartment is finally finished, I’m excited to cook more, create more recipes, and take food photos again. It finally feels like home here!
My Snickerdoodle Protein Ball recipe is the first new recipe I’m sharing! I love that they taste like little bites of peanut butter cookie dough. One of the best things about these protein balls, besides the amazing flavor, is that you should have almost all of the ingredients in your pantry! The only ingredient you may not have is the peanut butter collagen protein made by Primal Kitchen. Feel free to substitute with a different peanut butter protein powder, powder peanut butter, or vanilla protein powder.
These snickerdoodle protein balls are perfect to have before or after the gym or as a healthy afternoon snack! I’ve been picking up nursing shifts the past few weeks, so I’ve been needing some quick snacks to eat while I’m at work. I usually pack 2 of these in my lunch bag and have them as a mid- morning snack or in the late afternoon.
These snickerdoodle balls remind me of Christmas, I think it’s the cinnamon and maple syrup in them! They’re the perfect treat to make for the holidays when you’re craving something sweet but healthy!
