My Favorite Snack: No-Bake Protein Balls

Let’s face it, my biggest dilemma most days is what can I EAT? I’m trying to make healthy choices and fill the belly with nutrients over empty calories, but one of the biggest challenges is finding something that fills me up longer than 10 minutes.

{It’s so weird that I had to force myself to eat with a quad pregnancy and now with a single, I’m wanting ALL THE FOODS!} 

I LOVED this recipe before pregnancy and love it even more now, because it’s filling and a good source of protein, but it tastes like dessert! The boys consider this a favorite and I love it for in between meal hold-overs, after sports, a little boost at breakfast, etc to help fill their bellies.

Best part? It’s simple, no-baking required, and uses ingredients I usually have on hand. Usually I make a TRIPLE batch of this recipe, because they keep well and we devour them! You can also tweak this recipe to your liking by adding your favorite add-ins (your favorite chocolate chips, coconut, chia seeds, etc.).

How sweet is this little delivery I received at my bedroom door over the weekend? These boys are so good to their mama AND their baby brother!
