No Bake Protein Squares

A high-quality nutritious snack that is simple to make and an option that helps me from eating a package of Hershey bars! Let’s face it – life is busy and we can all quickly get side tracked by the impulse purchase while waiting in line at the grocery checkout. I made these no bake protein squares while my husband prepared our Labor Day family dinner. For the kids, I added colorful sprinkles to the protein squares after melting the chocolate on top. Enjoy!

Cookie Dough Energy Balls

My goodness – AMAZING! I’m guilty of making an entire batch of chocolate chip cookies and eating the entire bowl of cookie dough (over a few days).

I’m sharing one of my secret tips with you! These balls right here are gluten free, dairy free, and use my favorite line of vegan powder that gives me my vitamins and protein. It is nice to enjoy a sweet treat without putting me into a post sugar crash!

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED:

  • 2 1/2 scoops of Vegan Vanilla Shakeology
  • 1/2 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 TBSP chocolate chips (Enjoy Life brand)

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine Shakeology and almonds – mix well.
  2. Add in almond butter. You may find that using your hands to mix is easier!
  3. Add in honey – mix well.
  4. Add in chocolate chips.
  5. Roll into 13 balls (1 inch in diameter each). I prefer to use a stainless steel cookie scoop.
