Almond butter lovers like me will go crazy with these quick-and-easy 4-Ingredient Almond Butter Protein Balls! Reward your body with these sweet and nutty fiber-rich protein balls as a snack. Almond butter is a wonderful creamy alternative to peanut butter for anyone who is allergic to peanuts or looking for some innovation! Almonds are also rich in vitamin E and iron, and plenty of healthy unsaturated fatty acids. The coconut flour also gives it a special twist, while the collagen peptides aid in improving joint pain and muscle function. And because they are in the shape of bite sized balls, you’ll want to eat one after another!
