A filling salty nut free snack packed with protein, fiber, that are simple and quick to make!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Each ball contains 6g of fiber and 8g of protein thanks to the oats and chia seeds, making these bites a very satiating snack! The cacao nibs contribute 13% of your daily iron needs which is very important because iron is crucial to proper cellular functioning and is a mineral many women are deficient in. The salty/sweet flavor profile of these bites will satisfy your sweet tooth and savory cravings, enjoy!
