Raw, vegan protein balls {recipe}

When hunger strikes, I have to eat right then. It’s kind of a curse.. Or maybe just a lack of patience.

To keep from losing my mind or grabbing something that I’ll regret later, I always make sure to have simple and nutrient packed snacks on hand. Especially these protein balls!

They’re super easy to make, perfect for on the go and satisfying!
