No Bake Protein Balls

No Bake Protein Balls

“This post was sponsored by a2 Milk® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review

My husband grew up in Minnesota, where dairy farms stretch as far as the eye can see and milk is consumed three times a day.  Even at age 40 his favorite snack is still either milk and cereal or milk and cookies, which he sometimes sneaks when he thinks I’m asleep at night.  As much as he loves milk, it often gives him a discomfort in his chest.  He isn’t as inquisitive as me about health and had never really looked into it more, rather he just chalked it up as “one of those things”.  If he had done some research, he would have found that 1 in 4 Americans actually have discomfort after drinking milk.  Only 5-7% of the population has been clinically diagnosed with a lactose intolerance medical condition.

Great news from  a2 Milk® Company is that folks like my husband don’t have to live with that discomfort, or do away with milk altogether.  Their  a2 Milk®  tackles the issue with most of the conventional and even organic milks on the U.S. market, which is that they have A1 protein.  This A1 protein leads to many people’s discomfort, and the  a2 Milk® Company takes this head-on by specially selecting a2 cows whose milk is naturally free of the A1 protein.

The difference in  a2 Milk®  from other brands is in its taste, too.  The purity shines through for a smooth and unadulterated taste.  It’s some of the best milk that me and my husband have ever tasted.  After one sip I think you’ll will see exactly what I mean.    Another big differentiator in  a2 Milk® is how much healthier it is compared to other alternatives.  There are 6x the amount of calcium as a soy beverages, approximately 8x the protein of almond beverages and 6x the potassium levels of rice beverages.

No Bake Protein Balls

a2 Milk®  makes having the classic snack of milk a cookies a pain and discomfort free option again for millions of people.  Below see my No Bake Protein Balls Cookie Recipe, perfect to enjoy with a tall glass of milk. You will love that the recipe has no sugar added and is a completely no-bake option.  It’s so easy to make and can be ready in less than 15 minutes. I enjoy high protein foods for just about any meal, or for a pre/post workout or for a healthier-option snack.

    I know a lot of people that have trouble after drinking milk. I have never heard of the protein issue or A2 milk. I will have to investigate further.

    I just recently learned about A2 milk and this is definitely something that I can get for my husband and son. They can’t drink milk and this is a great alternative.

    The protein balls look delicious. I think my sister struggles with digesting milk. I’ll have to share the A2 milk with her.

    once the balls are made… do you store them in the fridge? also, how many balls would be one serving?
