Just, wow. Reminiscent of peanut butter and jelly, yet healthier, these energy balls will wake up your taste buds and potentially cause an argument with whoever eats the last one. They take about seven minutes to make, so you don't really have an excuse not to. Yum!
"Kids love these, you may have to hide them...so you can enjoy before or following your workout!"
Notes: Protein powder is Garden of Life

1. Combine all ingredients except strawberries in a food processor. (Or a large bowl if you prefer to use a mixer.) Process until combined.
