Almond Espresso Protein Balls! Sure to satisfy a craving for something sweet

Almond Espresso Protein Balls

By on October 28, 2016


I have been seeing and reading recipes for protein balls. I kept telling myself that I was going to give one a try but have not gotten around to it until the other day. I was looking for a little something sweet to munch on, to satisfy a craving as I kept seeing all the Halloween candy out there…  And thought I would go for it. I was a little unsure that these would be enough to satisfy my sweet craving, two protein balls equaled 1 serving but I was pleasantly surprised! They are just sweet enough, rich and oh so good! I love coffee so these were divine.  Definitely a treat that tastes like a cheat!

Not only are these delicious, they actually have some nutritional value as they contain my favorite morning drink – Shakeology! That means that these little gems have super-food nutrition in them! What they do not have is processed sugar or flour! And they were super simple to make! Just mix, roll and refrigerate!

Now I will have to try other protein bit recipes,  so stay tuned!

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
