Oh, and one more tip!  Store your protein balls in the refrigerator or make a big batch and freeze some too! You should be able to store these in your refrigerator for about 1 week and in the freezer for about a month.

I love the protein balls after they have been in the refrigerator for a little bit.  They’re already a nice summer snack but on a hot summer day they make an amazing chilled snack!  They are an easy snack idea kids love and parents can feel good about!
