These are so good! I don't use the chia seeds, but I do use the flax seed. Be sure to grind the flax seed to get the full nutritional value from it. I used a little coffee bean grinder. Great recipe!!

I thought they were very dry and difficult to roll into balls. I think substituting a banana in to help bind the ingredients would be a good substitution

I made this recipe without the Chia seeds. I heard they can add a bit of a sweeter taste. I'm rating this 5 stars even though I didn't care for it because I do not like honey, but I'm going to make them again with syrup. I think this is a great recipe and very convenient for when you are on the go that you just can open the fridge and grab a bite. My husband absolutely loved This recipe.

My husband and I love protein balls. I make them quite a bit to give us that boost of energy we need to get through our workouts or recovery afterwards. This is a great tasting and easy to make protein ball. You can mix up the additions to whatever you want. They are a great alternative to a pre-packaged granola bar. Give them a try you'll love them.

I use almond butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I only put in a couple tablespoons of honey. One thing that helped a ton was wetting my hands when forming the balls.

I've tried several protein ball recipes, these are by far the best! 5 stars!

Very good, and quick too! But I didn't add the seeds or protein powder and they still turned out great!

I add flaked coconut and butterscotch chips, as well as the chocolate chips. I only use the flax seed, not the chia(?). Makes fabulous no guilt sweet snack. My family raves about them.
