LID recipe: cookie dough protein balls

These 6️⃣ ingredient cookie dough balls are great for an on-the-go snack or dessert! We know it’s tough to get in enough protein while on LID, these are packed with plenty of plant protein! Chickpeas are a great source of plant based protein and flax meal is a great source of fiber and omega 3 fatty acids.

‼️ Quick tip: if you can’t find dairy free chocolate chips, use a dairy free chocolate bar and chop it up!
