Cocoa Balls with Protein Powder

These little healthy dessert cocoa balls get your sugar fix without all the guilt.  These little guys are perfect because they are full of healthy fat (almonds, coconut oil, chia seeds), protein (almonds and protein powder) and are sweetened naturally.  This protein powder is sweetened enough so you won’t need to add anymore sweetener to this recipe.
