Certain members of my family are confirmed chocoholics. And we all love the combo of chocolate and creamy peanut butter. So a chocolate PB version of Niyama protein energy balls was definitely something requested in our household. Truthfully, protein energy balls have become a staple in our freezer, they are so easy to make and a great alternative to commercial protein bars, which can get pricey with a larger family like ours, and there are only a few that i really feel good about all the ingredients they contain. We still keep a few bars in the pantry but more and more we are reaching for a couple homemade energy balls instead! Make them in 10 minutes and keep them in a container in the freezer to grab as needed. Best eaten after partially thawed.
This new Chocolate + PB version is seriously delicious and VERY satisfying! The chocolate chips are totally optional, as are the chia seeds.
