Raw Cookie Dough (Vegan) Protein Balls

by Kelly Ohnona 1 min read

Cookie dough protein balls covered in chocolate, one ball cut open

Gluten-free, vegan, high protein.

If you're anything like us, you'll probably eat half the batch of these energy balls before it ends up in the freezer :)

This can be made in advance and frozen for up to 1 month. You won’t need to add any sweetener because they’re already sweetened from the protein powder and the chocolate chips!
