Peanut Butter Protein Bites (Minus The Hidden Sugar!)


Finally! I created a quick, easy recipe that is packed with protein compared to other "no bake" energy bars that I have seen online. Not only that... these don't have honey like many other recipes do! These should be a substitute for your carb & fat (the protein is just an added bonus!) I hope you enjoy and feel free to share.

Ingredients

1 Very Ripe Mashed Banana

½ Cup Peanut Butter

¾ Cup of Oatmeal

¾ Cup Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl mash the very ripe banana. Add in peanut butter and vanilla extract and stir until well combined.

  2. In a separate bowl combine oatmeal, protein powder and cinnamon and site.

  3. Pour dry Ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until well mixed.

  4. Line a plate with parchment paper. Roll dough into small balls and place on the parchment paper and refrigerate for two 2 hours. Please note: these should be kept refrigerated. ENJOY!
