How to Make Kodiak Cakes Protein Balls:
To make 12 protein bites you add peanut butter, honey, and water to the mix.
I told you it was easy.
For mine, I used Ultra Fat Nut Butter from NSNG.
I like this because it is loaded with not only great-tasting nut butter but electrolytes and MCT oil.
The honey was local honey from just up the road. (Maple Syrup would work too).
You add it all to the bowl and then work with your hands or a spoon until the mixture is all incorporated.
I just grabbed and rolled, but you could use a cookie scoop for a round finish and no rolling.
The recipe makes 12 balls–they are LARGE.
You could make smaller ones by using a tablespoon if you wanted.
Lots of options here.
