These protein balls will take you to flavour town!

Want to try a different flavour of Protein Balls this week? Why not make our Rocky Road Protein Balls, they taste too good to be true!

The secret is sugar-free Jols and marshmallows to make the authentic rocky road flavour experience.

The peanut butter makes for a more rocky road flavour but can be omitted if there is an allergy.

If your kids don't like protein balls, they will now! They're ideal as a lunchbox filler or a treat pre workout.
