Protein Packed Peanut Butter Balls

This is definitely an easy-peasy, kid-friendly snack that's filling and nutritious. I've been making them for the last few months and all of the men in my house beg me to make more. My hubbs affectionately refers to them as "tasty gut bombs" because of what the flax does to his bowels. They couldn't be easier to throw together. What's not to love!?

Here is our cast of characters:

Super easy, super good! Enjoy your tasty gut bombs!
