Raw cacao and chia balls

Protein Balls

These devine balls are silky smooth and crunchy at the same time. Perfect for snacking on or satisfying your sweet tooth when you are craving something sweet.

This will take you 20-30 minutes to make from start to finish.

These are high in good fats. Therefore, like everything else, I recommend them to be eaten in moderation. If you are watching your macros, I have listed the reference below.

Note: The macros are calculated for the bulk not individual balls. Macros for each ball will vary as per the size you choose to make it. Just divide above total macros by the number of balls you make to get individual macro count.

Enjoy!
