These Chai Doughnut Balls are super delicious and super fast! Perfect if you’re on the go, need a quick and instant snack and oh so tasty.
The combination of spices in Chai aid in digestion, energy, and metabolism and not to mention high is many vitamins and minerals for a ball that’s good for your wellness inside and out. The addition of protein will help keep you full for longer so these are the perfect spicy treat for your 3pm slump or for the kids when they get home so they don’t ruin their dinner (we have all been there!)
If you are right into your spice mixes don’t be shy, add some additional to suit your taste!
