I was experimenting again because I couldn't find the protein balls recipe I made before with chia seeds and wheat germ and then I bought some dates because I had seen a different one that used dates and well, I couldn't find that one I liked either. I guess I should have pinned it. So, if you like this one, be sure to pin it so you don't forget where you found the recipe. This is a delightful clean eating recipe and it makes up a whole bunch, so you can easily go in the fridge and grab 3 of them for a quick snack.
