No-Bake Protein Balls

You probably have your favorite store-bought protein bars at home, I do too! But honestly, I really like making these protein balls because I can control what ingredients go in the mix, it decreases the packaging that goes to waste and I can easily adapt them to my taste preferences! Every ball contains 7g of protein. Take 10 minutes to roll up a batch of these protein balls and you’ll have a nutritious and filling snack readily available all week!

Chewy Maple Molasses Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy Maple Molasses Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the type of cookie that soothe you the instant you take that first bite. I got my love of molasses from my dad and late paternal grandma. They’ve been found in the kitchen pantry taking chugs from the molasses bottle to cure that sweet tooth. I’m the first to admit I’ve done it too and it definitely does the trick! Just adding one tablespoon to these cookies brings a lovely warm flavor and turns them from your average peanut butter cookie into a cozy holiday treat.
