What could be better than my cookie dough protein ball recipe? Double chocolate chip cookies that’s what.
I was always skeptical of ‘energy balls’ or ‘protein balls’ – I love snacking but I could never imagine these small balls being satisfying or filling.
I was wrong. They are actually great to keep you going mid-morning or as a quick boost before a workout. These are a really good combination of protein, fats and carbohydrates to fight the hanger.
If you’re skeptical like I was, it is worth making them just for the cookie dough – it tastes bomb.
They’re really easy to make and only take 5-10 minutes, so they’re a great easy meal prep that can be stored for the rest of the week.
I use a dairy-free chocolate peanut protein for these and it really adds to the flavour!
