Almond Coconut (no bake) Protein Balls

Here in CT, we are expecting a good ole’ nor’easter. One of my favorite things to do while snowed in, is try some recipes that I normally have no time for and snack while watching movies. These almond butter protein bars are so filling and make the perfect snack or breakfast. I had no chocolate chips so this version is sans chocolate but you can always add in some yummy dark chocolate chips for a little extra sweet flavor. Best part is, they are also no bake!
