My kids and I LOVE peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. However, they aren't the most healthy and nutritious option due to the high sugar content. But, as you know--there is always a healthier substitute.
Today on my YouTube channel, I'm sharing a recipe for almond butter & fruit protein balls that not only taste delicious but give you a boost of energy, too! I like making them as an after school snack or something we can pack on the go. The kids love them!
Click the video below to get the easy recipe:
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
