Lemon Poppy Seed Protein Balls
They call me The Ball Lady... Okay, maybe they don't, but I do. Okay, maybe I don't either. I mean that'd be weird... right?
One thing I am 100% certain of is that #Pricethedog calls me The Ball Lady:
(Throw it. Throw it. Throw it!!!)
Seriously though, "they" might call me that, because I get asked preeetttyy frequently for ball advice. Not to toot my own horn (beep beep) but I believe I have mastered the art of ball making. I have made and rolled into spheres... oh I don't know, probably thousands of these little suckers! Some people call them energy balls, protein balls, bliss balls, nut balls, date balls... I can't decide so I just use all the words. I used to make multiple batches of them a day at The Fresh Press and got the whole city (maybe?) hooked on balls! I don't know if this is something I'm proud of or not, but it sure comes in handy when I need a tasty treat made with great ingredients.
My favorite "flavor" to make? Oh boy... I can't choose. They're all so good.
But TODAY is all about these lemon poppy seed protein balls, which are definitely in my top 3 favorites!
Short story: Date/nut/protein balls are great for pre-workout, post-workout, afternoon crashes, sugar cravings, on-the-go snacks, and they're truly the one thing I recommend to every client I work with. So many people seem to struggle with snacking and sugar cravings, and they're just the perfect thing to have on hand!
They are balanced with fiber, fat, protein, plus beneficial vitamins and minerals, so you won't spike your blood sugar or find yourself going crazy afterwards.
Plus, these lemon poppy seed balls seriously DO THE TRICK if you are a poppy seed muffin lover like me! I actually like them a whole lot better than the huge muffins I used to get from Costco in high school, and I loved those things.
