“I'm on a mission to make healthy snacking simple,” said Wernli. “These delicious protein balls are gluten-free, plant-based and whole-family friendly!"
Crazy Richard’s said the novelties have three flavors: PB & Cacao, which has peanut butter, oats, dates, cacao nibs and unsweetened toasted coconut; PB & Strawberry, which has peanut butter, oats, dates, freeze-dried strawberries and unsweetened toasted coconut; and Cinnamon Oatmeal, which haspeanut butter, oats, dates, golden raisins, flax and organic cinnamon.
