Day 1 of 12 Days of Cookies!


 On the first Day of Cookies, my trainer gave to me… 

These energy peanut butter protein balls are my take on the tradition Peanut Butter Blossom Cookie. I don’t just make these protein balls just around Christmas time, I make them for parties or for a quick grab and go snack. I have made these for my bunko group, Christmas party, school parties and they are a big hit.

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Roll into 1 inch balls. Press down on a plate or cookie sheet until slightly flattened. Press a large, dark chocolate chip into the middle of each cookie. Refrigerate or keep at room temperature.
