I love bliss balls.
They’re such an easy snack to make and keep very well both in the fridge and freezer. If I’m rushing out the door or know I’ll be out all day, I’ll throw one into a small jar and stash it in my purse.
Problem is most of the protein balls I’ve had have been more of a sweet treat than anything else, always having loads of dates, which, although being delicious, also make it quite high in natural sugar. With that in mind, there is no added sugar, natural or otherwise, so these protein balls are not on the sweet side. They are delicious none-the-less, but if you do feel you need extra sweetness then go ahead and add some maple syrup or dates.
Also, we’re adding kale.
Yes, with the chocolate. No, I haven’t lost it.
Go with me on this one. Adding kale to bliss balls might not be that standard either, but hey, I’m always looking into new ways to add more greens so why not this way! You can’t really taste it, as the almond butter and cacao do a great job of making these protein balls taste indulgent and moorish.
For those of you trying to avoid carb-y snacks, these chocolate protein balls are exactly what you need!
