Chocolate coconut dipped protein balls

Happy hump day!
I just got to the coffee shop where I need to get some work done, but wanted to link up with Jenn and share these little ballz of goodness, hehe.

… If you’ve been reading for awhile, you can probably tell I really like to snack on protein ballz. I’ve posted a pumpkin flavor, & traditional. I make these ALOT. But, I had to share another! 1) They are easy! 2) Super customizable! possibilities are endless & 3) Their so good! Simple enough right? 😉

>> So, how about protein ballz that are dipped in a creamy chocolate coconut mixture? … { yum } 😀 <<
