Mix and Match Protein Bites

I’m a snacker.

No matter where you happen to be in my house, you’re never too far from a stockpile of snacks that I’ve hidden away. From granola on the kitchen counter and homemade crackers in desk drawers, to trail mix in my purse and my Super Secret Chocolate Stash, I like to be prepared for hunger to strike at any moment.

That’s why I like these little protein bites. With only five ingredients, but with so much variety to choose from, they are a quick way to create a snack that will feel new every time you make it.

It’s not mindless snacking, either– filled with protein and sweetened with pure maple syrup, these bites are a wholesome way to satisfy the munchies. Mix and match protein powder flavors with your favorite nut or seed butters, and feel free to play around with add-ins– nuts and seeds, dried fruit, chocolate chips… they’re all good!

The ones pictured here are half chocolate-almond butter and half vanilla-peanut butter– and a couple that I mashed together. 😉

      Thank you! These particular bites are pretty easy to shape because of the coconut flour. Whenever I have trouble getting other recipes to form, it’s usually because the mixture is too dry and crumbly. Sometimes all it needs is a few splashes of milk or water to help bind it together. As for the forming itself, I don’t have any real tricks– I just pinch off the amount I want to use and roll it with my palms. Sometimes it takes more time and patience than I want to give it. 🙂

    My sister needs a lot of protein in small portions due to a medical issue. I think she will really love these. Thanks so much! (BTW I saw this on the Dishing It and Digging It Link Party.)
