Honestly, I usually start my day with a cookie or a piece of chocolate. I just can’t help it. As much as I try to eat more sensible foods to start my day, my desire for delicious chocolate always wins out. 

So when I thought about making no bake protein balls – especially some packed with protein powder and other good-for-you wholesome ingredients and super foods – I got really excited.

Did you know that protein powder can be used in food recipes other than smoothies?

Yep, it’s true!

You can use protein powder as a substitute for cocoa powder if you like the taste of chocolate. Of course, you can add other protein powder flavors (such as vanilla, etc.) for your specific tastes.

Just imagine all of the nutrients packed in a protein powder. Now imagine adding those diverse protein sources to the foods and recipes that you love making. It’s a win-win!

No, I don't. It's going to depend on what kind of nut butter and sweetener you use, too.
