My willingness to bake flew out the window as the temperature approached 100 degrees today. Oy vey! I reworked my plans, making my blogging agenda no-bake or bust!

Since our family has a bit more travel ahead, I’ve created a portable, healthy and delicious snack option for packing and snacking: 4 Ingredient Peanut Butter Coconut Flour Protein Balls. The taste? Like a favorite truffle that’s had a spa makeover. Yum!

I know what you’re thinking: energy balls? Hardly new territory in the blogosphere. Then again, neither is ice cream, and that’s never stopped me from trying a new flavor or recipe. So I say keep the energy ball options coming!

Preparing a batch of these energizing treats simplicity itself; just mix, stir, shape. All manner of healthy & delicious ingredients can be tossed in the mix, and the results are so much tastier (and less expensive) than store-bought bars and balls.

Many energy and protein balls begin with oats. I love oats, but for a change of pace, these are grain-free. I was able to pack each ball with 2 grams of protein courtesy of peanut butter powder (e.g., PB2 or PBFit) and a can of white beans (which, I promise, you will not taste at all!).

If you wish to reduce the sugar in these balls, consider using a ketogenic-friendly granular sweetener in place of the coconut sugar.
