Cooking Tip

Use whatever trail mix you prefer for this simple and versatile recipe. Pureed dates can work well as a substitute for honey and any nut butter can be used as a substitute for peanut butter. Prep these protein balls ahead of time for a tasty and satiating snack after training. These nutrient and energy dense protein balls can also work well as a breakfast meal.
