Ingredients (makes 16 balls)

Note: For a nut-free option you can use sunbutter. You can use whey protein powder (isolate), egg white protein powder (e.g. Jay Robb, Reflex Natural, Pulsin), plant-based pea protein powder such as NuZest, or even grass-fed collagen. Make sure it's sweetened with natural low-carb sweeteners that won't spike your blood sugar levels. The carb count per 100 grams of protein powder should be around 4 grams. If you are using unflavored protein powder, you can add sweetener to taste (powdered erythritol, Swerve, monk fruit or stevia) or skip it altogether.
