Every time I spend $5 on another tiny container of healthy ice cream, I remember why it is that I like to keep treats on hand in the freezer for times like this.

Protein balls are one of my favorite ways to curb my nighttime (and noonday) sweet tooth.

These chocolate protein balls not only satisfy any chocolate craving, but the protein helps me stay fuller longer. Win win!

I don’t know about you, but every single night I get cravings for something salty, followed by something sweet.

That can easily add up calorie wise, so a protein ball is definitely a healthier way for me to keep my body fueled and my sweet tooth happy.

I love cashew butter in this recipe, but you could sub peanut butter or any other nut butter you want.
