Peanut Butter Protein Balls

I’m always looking for quick snacks to take along in my car as I frantically rush out the door.  (Yes, I am perpetually late despite my best effort to be on time- ex:  scouts is only 5 minutes away from my house, and I am always the last one to walk in, lol)

Protein balls and power bars are always a great option – but only after doing some research.  Many protein bars are loaded with sugar and have minimal protein in them to make it worth it.

These peanut butter protein bars are a takeoff of a recipe I found in Gimme Some Oven some time ago.  I’ve added in the Shakeo and reduced the Peanut Butter as I added in some PB2.

Give these a try ~  they are an awesome option for fast snacks to take in the car! Peanut Butter Protein Balls
