Quinoa Protein Balls

In prepping for camping this weekend, the job I volunteered for was meal planning and prep! I was obviously excited to do this.  Food for camping must be compact, with little refrigeration needed.  Stay tuned for the full menu early.  In the meantime, take a look and try the recipe for these compact, semi-raw, quinoa protein balls.  The perfect camping snack!  I just hope bears don’t like quinoa!
