Raise your hand: Team Donuts or Team Donut Holes?
It’s a tough choice, we know, but here’s another team to cheer for: Team Donut Balls!
These Apple Cider Donut Balls are everything you want in a snack: the perfect size to pop in your mouth, delicious flavors, and Shakeology. What more could you want?

- You can make your own oat flour by pulsing rolled oats in a blender or food processor until a fine flour texture is reached.
- After dusting, there will be a lot of coconut sugar fall out. For an added flavor punch, roll the protein balls in the remaining coconut sugar.
