It’s always bittersweet when I finish something, whether it’s a nut butter, protein bites, obviously anything else snacky. I hate to have the last of something, but that just means I get to experiment with new flavors! So when I finished my apple pie protein bites, rather than making more of the same, I decided to see what else was in the pantry. I noticed I have quite a bit of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter. And you just can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter, am I right? That’s a good place to start..
Dark Chocolate Berry Protein Bites
Makes 38 bites Ingredients – 2/3 cup chocolate protein powder [I used PlantFusion] – 1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder – 1/2 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter [You can sub another nut butter.. but why? ;)] – 1/2 cup canned lite coconut milk – 75 drops NuNaturals Cherry Vanilla liquid stevia – 1/4 cup dried goji berries [Dried cherries would be great too!] Directions In a large bowl, add all ingredients except the goji berries. Mix until everything is almost fully incorporated and then add the goji berries. Continue mixing until the granola is evenly distributed throughout. Depending on the protein powder and nut butter you use, you may want to add a little more coconut milk as you’re mixing. Using a 1/2 tbsp measuring spoon, measure out your bites and roll into balls. Place in an airtight container in the freezer. Nutritional Information Per 1/2 tbsp bite 32 Calories / 2g Fat / 2g Carbs / 0g Fiber / 1g Sugar / 2g Protein The stats are pretty darn close to my apple pie bites and they just happen to be the perfect pop-able snack before the gym or when your sweet tooth hits!
