Peanut Butter Protein Chocolate Balls

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

When you think of peanut butter and chocolate together, it sounds like a heavenly dessert. And it is! But this time, enjoy the combo as a savory snack that has very little sugar, with added fiber and protein. Feel free to get creative with these chocolate balls and add any superfoods to make them even more nutritious. Think goji berries, hemp seeds, or maybe even a dash of spirulina! If you prefer you can also add dates which work well to give it a nice consistency and more sweetness. Make this snack and you have yourself a new way to enjoy your handful of nuts as an afternoon snack.
