New Protein ball recipe! These have a chewier texture and have the option to be coated in cocoa powder which actually adds a slightly bitter taste. Also I was out of my regular protein powder so I used a new kind – Gold Standard 100% Whey Chocolate Malt. I think they’d taste pretty much the same with any brand. Hope you enjoy!
Chocolate Cranberry Protein Balls
