Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Balls

These Healthy Peanut Butter Protein Balls make for a tasty, nutritionally-balanced snack with energy-providing healthy fats, long-lasting carbs, and complete proteins.  Low-glycemic foods provide constant and prolonged energy levels so your blood sugar doesn’t spike and crash as it would if you were to eat a pop tart–both the pop tart and these protein balls taste really good, but the pop tart has no benefit, so choose the protein balls!  You won’t get hungry right away and you’ll feel good about eating them 🙂
