Cookie Dough Energy Balls

Text Size

Yields 14 servings

⅓ cup natural peanut butter
¼ cup honey
1 scoop chocolate or vanilla whey protein powder
3 tbsp ground flaxseeds
3 tbsp mini dark chocolate chips
3 tbsp wheat germ

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients except for the wheat germ. The dough should resemble Play-Doh.

Roll into 14 small balls and then roll balls in the wheat germ to coat. Refrigerate overnight for best results.

Tip: If you don’t have any wheat germ, there are plenty of other roll toppings to use. Some options include flaxseeds, chia seeds, cocoa powder, crushed nuts, toasted sunflower seeds, and toasted coconut flakes.

Vary it! Feel free to experiment with other nut butter including almond and cashew. If you don’t want to use dark chocolate chips, consider trying some chopped dried fruit.
