I love the flavour of a chocolate mocha! Many of those are loaded with white sugar, cream, and all kinds of stuff I don’t want to put into my body. What I’ve created here are protein Mocha Balls. These are bursting with chocolate coffee flavour. They have the added benefit of a quick pick-me-up. These would be great as a pre-workout snack. Keep in mind that these do have caffeine so they are not for the little ones. This is an adult flavour that is so delicious. You have to try these! I have a container in my freezer that makes it easy to grab a couple when it’s time for the quick pick-me-up snack.

Do you have nutritional facts for this
What would you recommend in place of wheat germ for us gluten-free peeps? 🙂
Yes! You can use hemp seeds, chia seeds or flax! All will work great 🙂
