Cookie Dough Protein Balls
Gluten Free | Low Carb
It’s important to always have a healthy snack on hand. I often consume a cookie dough protein ball as a mid-afternoon snack when I require extra fuel before training in the evening. They are super easy to make so please give them a go!
Protein Powder is great for muscle recovery, blood sugar control and can support weigh tloss muscle growth. I use a delicious vanilla WPI protein powder by Bare Blends, sweetened naturally with stevia and doesn't have any added nasties i.e. fillers, artificial colours/flavours. However if you're vegan, you could try their pea protein powder. Check their range out here: https://bareblends.com.au/protein-powder.
