When you need to satisfy a sweet craving, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls might just be your new BFF.

I honestly don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I’m more of a salty snack girl.

And queso.

All kinds of cheese.

Always and forever, amen.

Which is why I’m able to bake as much as I do, because most of the time it doesn’t tempt me.

But every once in awhile, I’ll get a craving for something sweet, and as much as I try to eat healthy 85% of the time, when the craving is fierce, I’m sorry, but a handful of grapes, much as I love them, just isn’t going to cut it.

This is when you need to start thinking outside of the box a bit and get creative.

Slightly adapted from a post I saw on Instagram last week, these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls are the ticket to satisfying that intense I NEED CHOCOLATE NOW moment.

Five minutes to make, four ingredients, super healthy.

But the best part? You’d think you were eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup if you didn’t know better.

TRUST ME.
