It can be really hard to find a snack sometimes that has protein, is filling, and healthy for you! I first made these energy balls in the spring to take to a YYC BBG Meet Up, and they were loved by everyone! They are quick and easy to make, and you can use any flavor of protein powder you want in them!

Today I used my Unico Nutrition Peanut Butter Chocolate protein powder, and it just made the flavor so much more peanut butter filled! You can never go wrong with too much peanut butter, at least not in my books.

If you want to try out Unico, use the code KYLEY at checkout to save yourself 15% off your order! They have 5 awesome protein flavors, and sell BCAA’s and pre workout as well. I’m an ambassador and love their products.

These energy balls are now the perfect grab and go snack!
