Back-To-School Peanut Butter Protein Balls


I love eating snacks with my kids. As mommas, we know the importance of keeping healthy snacks in the house with real food ingredients. One of my favorite snacks to make with the kids is peanut butter protein balls.

This back-to-school protein ball recipe makes a healthy, easy, and fun snack option. These are great if you are just starting out on a clean eating journey or if you’re always on the go.

Most protein ball recipes have nuts, seeds, flavor from dried fruit, and oatmeal. If your children are allergic to nuts or peanut butter, you can find tons of allergy-free recipes on Pinterest. If your kids are lucky to not have a peanut butter allergy and love chocolate, then this recipe will be a huge hit at your house! Enjoy!

Combine dry ingredients and stir to mix well. Then mix in wet ingredients and stir to combine. Use a measuring tablespoon to portion your protein balls. (This saves a ton of time). Place protein balls on a baking sheet and harden in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for one hour. Enjoy!
