Each dough ball contains around 7g of protein, and 160 calories. Of course, you could omit the chocolate chips for even less calories! But you know me, I love my chocolate. 😉 What I love most about these protein balls (besides the peanut butter, and protein factor!) is they taste like peanut butter cups, only a lot healthier!

  1. This sounds easy and delicious! My daughter is coming home from college next week (Yay!) and I’m definitely making this for her — she’s allergic to peanut butter, but I imagine almond butter would work too, don’t you think?

  2. Love that these delightful little, super colorful balls are so packed full of protein. Is there really anything better than a portable, sweet AND healthy snack? Don’t think so! Hehe. Pinning! Have a wonderful weekend, Marsha. 🙂

        • Seeing as you only need a small amount of coconut flour, using plain/all-purpose flour in its place should be fine. You may need to use more all-purpose flour, as coconut flour absorbs more moisture, so a little of it goes a long way. For every cup of all-purpose flour, you only need 1/4 – 1/3 cup of coconut flour. 🙂

  3. I love how quick and easy these are! I’m always looking for ways to get more protein, and this would be a perfect little protein dessert or breakfast! I’ve gotta try soon, they look amazing!
