Life is about balance, right? Which is why we think it’s totally ok to eat healthily, work out *and* get a decent chocolate fix too. A life of denial really is no fun. And it’s because of this exact reasoning that you should pack a protein ball or two into your snack-box to eat on-the-go. These energy-boosting treats are way more nice, than naughty, yet still taste totally delish.
Today, we’re sharing a recipe for some bite-sized, protein-enriched balls that you can make at home in under an hour.

– 300g dates, chopped and pitted
