Holiday Cookie Exchange? Try these Raw Protein Treats!

Raw Protein Balls

I am going to my sisters Cookie Exchange in a couple weeks!

I know this time of year is tempting with LOTS of baked goods and goodies that I wanted to contribute something a bit healthier!

So I thought why not make some good ol’ Raw Protein Balls! 🙂


I’m especially excited to share these with you because these taste awesome!

So I wanted to write up the recipe I used on a blog!

These little balls are packed with so many nutrients that help cut down cravings and KEEP you full!

They are perfect for on the go moms or a great little dessert for a potluck type of dinner party!

You could also dress them up for the holidays or a special occasion just by rolling them in a variety of different toppings – sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, carob powder, cacao nibs, chia seeds, coconut flakes, and on and on.

You can find some of the ingredients at my favourite store Raw Elements and get 10% off by using the code word ‘YOGI’.

And, they’re made with clean, real food ingredients and are raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo-friendly and contain no refined sugar!
