No Bake Protein Bites
Holy Cats it’s Labor Day weekend! How’d that happen?
Hard to believe summer is metaphorically over (technically it’s not over until September 23rd) #nerdstatus BUT I’m excited for fall.
You know that saying…. Something like “fail to plan, plan to fail”….? That’s how I feel about food. If I don’t plan ahead and have healthy snacks and food on hand, next think you know, I’m making bad decisions and compulsively thinking about 150 new Lays potato chip flavors(ps I totally think I should be the million dollar winner). I think I really have some great ones but that’s not the point. The POINT is that I DON’T want to eat every flavor of Lays chips and I don’t want to make bad choices.
So every week I spend time trying to cut veggies and clean fruit and make it easy to grab. But sometimes a celery stick or handful of grapes isn’t cutting it. Like I need chocolate or I need crunchy salty….. it’s like a ravenous beast hijacks my body….. the struggle is real.
ENTER these delicious and healthy snack bites. They’re healthy, they’re easy, they’re no bake, they’re easy to store, and easy to bring along anywhere. oh and it tells your mental chocolate monster to STFU 🙂
I’ve made some of these before but honestly these are the best ones I’ve made. I combined several recipes (you’re welcome for testing all types of chocolate and sweet goodness for you. It was hard work……………….)
These are a great option for kids, for adults, for school, for lunches, for snacks, for car rides, for day trips, for watching Scandal on Netflix on the couch for hours…. oh just me? ok then.
Bottom line. These little babies are delicious and a healthy sweet treat. You literally have no reasons to not make them . Like right now.
Here’s the Recipe:
There you have it! As noted, you might have to put a little elbow grease into mixing is all together but even if it seems a little dry in the bowl, once you roll into a ball in your hands, you’ll realize it’s actually perfect and the stick together great!! Hope you get to give these a try and that you enjoy!
HAPPY FRIDAY! Have a wonderful LONG weekend!
