These easy-to-make Chocolate Collagen Energy Balls are packed with protein and healthy, good for you ingredients.They will keep you energized all day long!

If you are like me, you LOVE to snack. In between meals I always find myself reaching for something to munch on. More times than not I want something sweet.  These 3 Ingredient Chocolate Collagen Energy Balls are great to prepare in advance and keep on hand for when my hunger strikes, rather than reaching for something like a candy bar. The Further Food Chocolate Collagen gives these energy balls additional protein with added benefits to your skin and gut. Plus reishi mushrooms help beat fatigue and are actual mood boosters.

I like to say “if you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail”, which is why I like to prepare a big batch of these Chocolate Energy Balls at the beginning of the week. Keep these in the fridge and just grab and go when you need that perfect sweet but healthy treat.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These energy balls are great to get you through the afternoon slump. They refined sugar-free and are naturally sweetened with dates. Plus they will keep you going and energized until dinner since they high in healthy fat from the cashews and also high in protein from the Further Food Chocolate Collagen.
