These little snacks are delicious and pack a protein punch! While there are a lot of homemade protein bar/ball recipes out there, I wanted to create one without the added sugar of honey or syrup. So I went to work and found success surprisingly quickly. While I made a couple attempts to increase the protein to fat ratio, I kept coming back to the recipe below, which has a great balance of macronutrients and is still delicious.

*Makes 12 balls
10 pitted dried dates, chopped
1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
33 white chocolate chip morsels
- Mix together crispy rice, chopped dates, protein powder and chocolate chips. Add peanut butter.
