Cherry Almond Coconut Protein Balls

Keep These in Your Freezer For a Quick Post-Workout Treat

Sipping on a protein shake after a workout is a great way to help your muscles recover, but if you're not careful, you could be consuming so many calories that you end up gaining weight. For a lighter, more portable post-workout snack, roll up some nutty homemade protein balls made with a high-protein secret ingredient.

These are made without protein powder, so they're perfect if you're not a fan or it's not an ingredient you keep in your kitchen.

The protein in these bites comes from cottage cheese, raw almonds, and rolled oats. With a touch of cinnamon and maple syrup, these balls that you pop in the freezer taste more like an after-workout bite of cherry cheesecake. Each ball contains 78 calories and offers 3.7 grams of protein.
