Paleo Protein Balls

These Paleo Protein Balls Only Have 1 Gram of Sugar

Most protein balls aren't Paleo! But these are. No grains, no dairy, no peanuts, and no protein powder made from whey or legumes. Mildly sweet, these are as close to cave time as you can get.

Made with just seven ingredients including raw nuts, hemp hearts, flaxmeal, and banana, you'll love that these 79-calorie balls have only one gram of sugar.

Low in carbs and offering 2.7 grams of protein, they have the soft cookie-dough texture that will satisfy your dessert cravings in a healthy way. Make them ahead of time, keep them in the fridge, and they're great to grab after a workout.
