For many women in particular, eating can feel like a chore – especially for fit, active women. Why? Well, women tend to take on the world and condition themselves (subconsciously) to do so on minimal energy. I say – it’s a woman thing.
As a Nutritionist, Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach, I see many women that would eat properly if only they had time and guidance. That is why we search for recipes right? We all want a little guidance and stamp of approval.
So without further ado – here are HEALTHY, DELICIOUS no-guilt Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter Balls that are both taste tested and nutritionist approved!
No Bake Chocolate Protein Peanut butter balls are a fantastic way to calm your sweet tooth, help you enjoy eating and get in your calories (especially if you’re currently Chronically Undereating). Try these for a sweet treat or use as a supplement to help you achieve optimal results and eat yummy stuff – guilt-free!

- Mix together oats, chia seeds, flax seed, protein powder and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice into a food processor or mixer until all ingredients are finely mixed or chopped down. It is okay to use a mixer and keep your oats rolled (my personal favorite way when I`m short on time)
- Add water slowly until all ingredients are mixed.
- Mix in chocolate chips
- Roll final product into 1″ energy balls.
- Refrigerate or Freeze
