Being into fitness and eating healthy, i loved this recipe as its got all the good fat and protein and care is taken to use unsweetened cocoa powder. Every thing is healthy about this recipe and i have one or 2 peanut balls for dessert after dinner. Between my wife and me, we need to make this recipe on a weekly basis. It takes care of our little sugar cravings.
