Some of you may be familiar with my love for anything nut-related (ahem…my triple-threat nut butterย is a must-try!), so naturally, I tend to gravitate towards creating nut-based recipes. These almond coconut protein balls are the perfect grab-and-go snack, pre or post-workout fuel, or addition to your breakfast! They’re packed with healthy fats and protein, so they’ll keep you satisfied for a long time.

Sure, you can buy a bar or energy bites from the store, but many are filled with crappy ingredients even if they’re deceptively labeled as “healthy”. These protein balls are made with wholesome, natural foods- we’re talking about nothing butย realย stuff!

They only take a few minutes to whip up, and it’s simply a matter of chucking the ingredients into a food processor. Doesn’t get much easier than that! Store these protein balls in the fridge and you’ll be stocked up for the week!

    Wow these look heavenly!! I can totally agree that it’s best to make foods like these at home instead of buying store-brought versions which are ridden with various chemicals.. Also, your photography is on point ๐Ÿ˜‰
