Almond Butter & Chocolate Chip Collagen Balls

These balls of nut butter goodness make a great snack to keep on hand. Store them in the refrigerator and pull one out when you get hungry. They are sweetened with dates, contain healthy fats, and collagen. For the chocolate chips I used Hu chocolate gems, but feel free to use any dairy-free chocolate chips you like. I also used Vital Proteins collagen peptides. Make sure you are using unflavored collagen and not gelatin. The gelatin will not work. These will be in snack rotation at my house for sure.
