You can whip them together in hardly in any time and they make the perfect grab and go snack. These are great for when you have to run out the door and don’t have time to eat because they will keep you satisfied for a while!
For the protein in these I used vital proteins collagen peptides and if you have not tried these yet I reccomend you give them a try!
They come in a powder that is completely tasteless and dissolves easily into anything. I always add them into my baked goods for an extra protein boost as well into my morning coffee.
There are so many benefits to adding grass-fed collagen protein to your diet. It’s amazing for hair, skin, and nails and also supports your gut health among other things.

Melt together the ghee and peanut butter in a small sauce pan on the stove top (you can also do this step in the microwave).
Other then the chocolate chips, mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Once mixture has cooled, stir in the chocolate chips.
Allow to chill in refrigerator for one hour.
Form into small balls and store in the fridge.
If the balls are not sticking together you can add a little more honey and if they are too wet you can add a little more oats.
