Oreo Protein Balls
After the success of the peanut butter cup truffes, I thought i'd play with another one of my favourite treats - oreos!
These delicious biscuit based balls have under 100kcal & 5g protein per piece & a batch can be made in minutes. If you prefer the creamy bit of oreos then make sure you use vanilla protein powder (like I did), if you prefer the chocolatey bit then use a chocolate one!
Serving - Makes 10 balls
