True Protein Balls

I love a good snack.  Recently while trying to find another recipe I stumbled upon this recipe for protein balls.

Since my allergy testing, I’ve gotten a lot more serious about removing gluten from my diet.  It still makes an appearance every now and then, but I know which gluten sources I can eat (like cookies but moderation), and can’t (bread, a good quality sourdough is an exception).

Snack options have become limited.  Which is why I love these balls to snack on.  They are quick, pack a punch and I can take anywhere.

The original recipe can be found here on Whole Food Simply
