Back with another Clean Snacking post, I’ve got three words for you – Function over flavor.
…that’s what most people think when it comes to eating healthy – thing is, that’s just not true.
I always like finding and coming up with new snacks to hit my protein mark for the day, and I think this recipe has probably been a favorite of mine lately.
With only 5 ingredients all of which you can find at your normal grocery store, this is one you won’t want to miss.
Before we get started, if you haven’t already, go ahead and challenge yourself with the SUPP UP. 5-Day Military SSE Workout Challenge. Also, I’ve finally gotten with the times and started podcasting – if you prefer listening or are vision impaired, you can start getting new content over on my Podcast channel and listen on 6 different platforms and counting – check that out here.
I like these because they take 10 minutes tops to make, and they’re good for those lazy days when you want something sweet but don’t feel like firing up the oven, or caving when you see milk chocolate in the store. They’re also really great post workout when your metabolism’s ramped up and you’re still craving food.
Here’s the recipe.
Chocolate Coconut Protein Balls
Makes: 1 perfectly crafted serving – no sharing here.
Prep Time: 10 minutes.
Cook time: 0 minutes.
Total Time: 10 minutes.

Nice and easy. Here’s the macros:
Best of all, they’re high in healthy fats, which if you don’t know already, help you in more ways than one – your heart, brain, and muscles all benefit here. If you read either of my nutrition guides, you’ll know exactly what I mean. If you haven’t, well…you know what to do – pick up your guides now, either as a bundle or individually.
