Recipe: Protein Power Balls

Post by Olivia Martino Blogett, Registered Dietitian and Owner

It’s been awhile since I have written a blog post and the reason is because I had a sweet little baby girl 6 weeks ago.  My whole life has changed and my days of spending hours in the kitchen creating intricate meals are on hold for now, thus the inspiration for sharing this recipe.  Right now, I need my food to be easy, fast, filling and nutritious.  Preferably, my food choices are also something I can easily eat with a baby on my chest.  I scanned through the recipe archives in my brain and remembered a snack recipe that I commonly share with clients for Protein Power Balls.  There are many versions of these types of snacks on the internet and you can certainly get creative with ingredients and flavors.  This is one of the tastiest combinations I have found and they back a protein punch. Make up a batch and have them on hand throughout the week! Enjoy!
