Salted caramel protein balls

Salted caramel protein balls

If I could make everything salted caramel flavour, I’d be a happy gal! I am obsessed with this flavour and these salted caramel protein balls are perfect to satisfy my cravings. 😉

Made with only 5 ingredients, these are so simple to make. No bake – just add all ingredients into a bowl/food processor and roll into cute little balls of deliciousness.

These are great to have on the side of a tea or coffee or as a sneaky snack during a busy day. There’s a whopping 8g protein per ball! Because they are high protein and packed with healthy fats, they’ll keep you fuelled for a good while.

Also, they cost 25 cent per ball. TWENTY FIVE cent versus €2.50/€3 for a protein bar in the shop. It’s a no-brainer 🙂

Salty, sweet, fudgey and protein packed!
