Protein Ball Recipe

Some days I find there simply aren’t enough hours in the day and sometimes I find myself wanting food that I can just grab and stuff in my face on the go. This is how this protein ball recipe was born. My last few recipes have all used Lupin flakes which can quite easily be used instead of flour in a number of recipes helping to make recipes more nutritious.

If you are like me and eat low carb meals the majority of the time, then this protein ball recipe can easily be adapted to be low carb by simply leaving out the goji berries.
