Peanut Protein Balls Recipe

These balls are quick to make and are great after a training session. Please note the calories, make them smaller if needed to lesson the calories in one hit. You can try a variety of ingredients to fill with instead of raisins and you can roll them in things like desiccated coconut, finely chopped nuts or even coat in melted chocolate for added instagram glam!
