Double Chocolate Energy Balls

I love energy balls and collagen balls because it’s just nice to have something that is healthy and made, ready to go when you are feeling the need for a treat. You could always add collagen peptides to these for extra protein, you may need to add a little coconut oil if they aren’t sticking together very well. These will last a few weeks if kept in the refrigerator.  Make sure you are using almond butter that is unsalted and the only ingredient is almonds.

Double Chocolate Energy Balls

Collagen balls are the perfect little snack when you need a pick-me-up, and these are for chocolate lovers. They are also Paleo and gluten-free.
