DIY Brownie Cookie Dough Swirl Protein Balls

While searching through Pinterest one day, I found this great recipe for protein balls. But no, these aren't just protein balls. They are brownie cookie dough swirl protein balls! They taste super yummy and they are very easy to make. They aren't the healthiest snack you will ever meet, but they are a healthier little treat when you have a chocolate craving. Here is the recipe!

1/4 cup chocolate protein powder
1/2 cup oat flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons almond butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/4 cup almond milk

1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons almond butter
3 tablespoons almond milk

1. In a medium size bowl, mix together all ingredients in the top section of the lest. It should be the consistency of cookie dough. If it's a bit dry, add some more almond milk.
2. Then roll the dough into about 1/2 tablespoon balls and set aside.
3. Rinse the bowl you used, and then mix together the rest of the ingredients. Again, if it's too dry, add some almond milk.
4. Roll the dough into about 1/2 tablespoon balls.
5. Next, take one ball of each and combine them by compressing them together and rolling into a ball. Repeat with the rest of the balls.

Note: This recipe makes 16-18 balls.
