These are so good! I don't use the chia seeds, but I do use the flax seed. Be sure to grind the flax seed to get the full nutritional value from it. I used a little coffee bean grinder. Great recipe!! Read More

I thought they were very dry and difficult to roll into balls. I think substituting a banana in to help bind the ingredients would be a good substitution Read More

I've made these twice - we liked them so much I quadrupled the recipe the second time. I wore non powder, non latex gloves to mix because I squished everything together really well and this way the sticky stuff didn't get under my nails or in my rings. I've already added hemp seed and some coconut as well. I also run the dark chocolate chips through the food processor to make them even smaller. If you soak the Chia seeds in 1/4 cup of water for a little bit, they start to develop into a gel and I think acts as another binder. Initially these are expensive to make when you buy everything at once but in the long run, I'm sure it's cheaper than buying granola bars for the kids' lunch and WAY HEALTHIER. I still have to find out if they are freezable. I added the picture of my quadruple recipe. It filled a sheet pan with 68 balls. Read More

I use almond butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I only put in a couple tablespoons of honey. One thing that helped a ton was wetting my hands when forming the balls. Read More

My husband and I love protein balls. I make them quite a bit to give us that boost of energy we need to get through our workouts or recovery afterwards. This is a great tasting and easy to make protein ball. You can mix up the additions to whatever you want. They are a great alternative to a pre-packaged granola bar. Give them a try you'll love them.

Love it! Motivated to grab this instead of a candy bar! I used semi sweet chocolate chips instead of dark chocolate. I used natural peanut butter and added a tablespoon of organic cocao powder instead of protein powder. I did not need to chill before I rolled into balls. I mixed with gloved hands and formed balls right away. I chilled the balls. Next time, I'll double the recipe. Yummy! Read More

I made this recipe without the Chia seeds. I heard they can add a bit of a sweeter taste. I'm rating this 5 stars even though I didn't care for it because I do not like honey but I'm going to make them again with syrup. I think this is a great recipe and very convenient for when you are on the go that you just can open the fridge and grab a bite. My husband absolutely loved This recipe. Read More

I modified a bit based on what I had in my house. I used 3/4 cup McCann's Quick Cooking Irish Oatmeal and 1/4 cup Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain almond cereal (for added crunch). I also used Honey in the Rough because I don't like the strong taste of other honeys. Added 1 teaspoon of maple syrup a couple of yellow raisins and because I did not have dark chocolate used milk chocolate. These were outrageously delicious! Read More

This is great. I was looking for some way to combine ground up coffee and dark chocolate together and this is the perfect medium. I have made it twice now following the recipe to a tee outside of adding the coffee and really happy with it. To shake things up a bit think I'm going to try a dash of cayenne pepper in the next batch. Read More

Kind of like a no-bake cookie that didn't get pressed down. Yummy and some healthier ingredients. They always get eaten up fast! Read More
