Although we’re mostly paleo, we definitely have our little treats here and there – Some are still healthy! This time.. We’re doing Chocolate Protein Bites! Lately I’ve been really, really sluggish, exhausted, foggy brained, etc. and needed to create SOMETHING to help me!
So I’ve been skipping coffee in the mornings and having a multivitamin Purely Inspired Organic Greens smoothie instead to try and get as many vitamins and minerals in me as I can and it’s definitely already made a difference. And although Oats aren’t paleo they are beneficial as they absorb slowly in the body, giving you a longer boost of energy so I decided to start making some protein bites to assist in getting my energy levels back up!
They’re perfect as each batch makes around 12 (Depending on how large you make them!) – So they last for a few days, the kids love them for snacks, they’re perfect for on-the-go and for a MUCH needed energy pick-up.
I’m gonna share this recipe with you as it’s made a huge difference lately and they’re really, REALLY good.. And it’s perfect for the summertime as no-bake is great since it’s already SO hot outside!
Chocolate No-Bake Protein Bites
- 1 Cup Dry Quick Oats
- 1/2 t Pure Vanilla Extract
- 2 Dashes of Salt
- 1 Scoop of Purely Inspired Decadent Chocolate Protein Powder
- 1/4 Cup of Honey
- 1/2 Cup No-Stir Smooth Almond Butter
- 2 Handfuls of 65% Cacao chunks
After combining in a bowl, place in fridge for around 30 minutes. Then form into balls and enjoy! They last around 5 days in the fridge! Easy peasy!
