Whey Better Protein Balls


1/2 cup natural peanut, almond or cashew butter
3 tbsp honey
1 orange, zest only
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup plain, vanilla or chocolate whey protein powder
3 tbsp chia seeds
Pinch of salt


Stir together nut butter, honey, orange zest, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Add the protein powder and mix until fully incorporated. The mixture should be doughy and just slightly moist. If it is too dry, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached.

Roll the mixture into twelve 1-inch balls. Place chia seeds in a shallow dish and roll the protein powder balls in the seeds.

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate.

Makes 12 protein balls.
