PB Balls and Strawberry Muffins 009 A perfect little treat to satisfy that sweet & salty flavor you've been craving - all natural, no bake little bites that take 10 minutes to make and are full of good-for-you ingredients.

These little bites are a perfect mid-day pick up, with 5 grams of protein, healthy fats and cinnamon and flax for a healthy body.

They are even better after you throw them in the fridge for a few hours!

PB Balls and Strawberry Muffins 006 The first batch I tried were a tad dry, even though some people really liked them anyways, however with the addition of some coconut oil, they became creamy and gooey bites even after they were in the fridge!
