This Antioxidant-Rich Recipe Puts Every Other Snack to Shame

Protein bars rock—they're easy to stash in your gym bag and perfectly portable for a satiating kick when you need to recover. The only downside? Some of the most coveted bars have more than 20 grams of sugar! That's the equivalent of 5 teaspoons of sugar—not the healthiest option when you're working on your gains.

Protein balls are here to save the day. This protein-packed recipe has wholesome ingredients, and it takes less than 10 minutes to whip up. You'll be daydreaming about digging into your gym bag for a taste of one of these.
