Chocolate & peanut butter protein balls

I love adding peanut butter to this recipe because although its relatively high in fat (115 calories per tablespoon) it’s the good kind – unsaturated!

Peanuts are very good source of plant based protein and have healthy amount of vitamin B and E as well as magnesium, iron and zinc.

These balls also contain raw cacao, chia seeds, flaxseeds and maple syrup.
